I want to leave office as soon as possible - Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he is looking forward to stepping down as president.
Buhari made the remarks during a courtesy visit to the palace of Sidi Bage Muhammad I, Emir of Lafia, in Nasarawa state, according to presidential spokeswoman Femi Adesina.
While committing not to serve beyond his constitutionally mandated two-term term, Buhari also remarked that leaders who swear by the holy book upon taking the oath of office must be mindful not to misuse the trust placed in them by the people.
“I have seen former governors here and I am looking forward to also becoming a former president," Buhari stated.
He congratulated Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, the immediate past governor, and Abdullahi Sule, the incumbent governor, for the laudable initiatives and accomplishments in Nassarawa state.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
