On Friday, President Muhammadu Buhari expressed his gratitude to Nigerians for their patience over his eight years in office.
President Buhari pleaded for forgiveness from those he might have harmed in carrying out his constitutional responsibilities when speaking to Abuja residents who had come to pay him sallah tribute.
The President, who said that he was counting his days and cannot wait to retire to his Daura home town, added that his home is eight kilometres to Niger Republic.
He noted that he got all he asked of God and would quietly retire home.
He said: “Thank you for tolerating me. I consider myself lucky to have been a governor, minister, head of state and now President for two terms.”
He commended residents of the FCT for being tolerant hosts, adding: “I can’t wait to go home. I deliberately arranged to be as far away as possible from you people.”
He recalled how he lost three elections and wound himself in front of the Supreme Court, and how technology—specifically, the Permanent Voters Card, or PVC—came to his aid in 2015.
On May 29, 2015, Buhari took the oath of office to begin a four-year term as president. On May 29, 2019, he was re-elected, and he began a second term.
