President Muhammadu Buhari says he is eagerly looking forward to handing over to his successor because his experience in the presidency has been a tough one.
Buhari said after the end of his administration next year he would retire to Daura home in Katsina, not Kaduna, where he has a better house.
The president said this while addressing some governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC), legislators, and political leaders who visited him at his residence in Daura, Katsina State, on Monday, July 11, 2022.
“By this time next year, I would have made the most out of the two terms, and in the remaining months I will do my best,” he said.
He said due to the demands of his office, he has not been to his house in Daura for close to a year.
“I wish the person who is coming after me the very best,” he said.
“I am eager to go. I can tell you it has been tough. I am grateful to God that people appreciate the personal sacrifices we have been making,” he added.
On insecurity, the president said the North-West posed more challenges to his administration, while some successes were recorded in other regions.
