President Buhari claims that he has given his all for the country and that he does not expect Nigerians to thank him.
The president said that he expects residents to recognize him once he leaves office, in an exclusive interview with NTA that was monitored by The Guardian on Thursday, January 6.
“What I am expecting is for Nigerians to say this man has done his best.
What else can I do for this country, I have given my best, I hope after I leave, Nigerians will reflect. I am not expecting any appreciation but what I am expecting is for Nigerians to say yes, this man has done his best.”he said
When he leaves office in 2023, the President says he plans to take a well-deserved break. Many of his colleagues, he said, are now enjoying their retirement, and he wants to follow in their footsteps when his term ends in 2023.
In other news, President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that he is looking forward to becoming “less busy” as he grows older.
The Nigerian leader, who recently turned 79, expressed hope that Nigerians would appreciate everything he has done towards the end of his reign in an interview with NTA.
According to Buhari,
“About my age, I see my colleagues, they are now resting, and I assure you that I look forward to the next 17 months when I too will be less busy.
“The age is telling on me, working now for six, seven to eight hours per day in the office is no joke — there are questions of executive council, memos from as many states as possible to be considered virtually every week. Really, it’s a lot of hard work, but as I’ve said, I asked for it and I cannot complain.
“I have been a governor, I have been a minister, and I’m in my second term as president. So, I’ve gone through all the system and really, what else can I do for this country? I have given my best.”
