I am going to join my cattle in Daura after handover, says Buhari
The outgoing Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that on completion of his term office in the next few days, he would be relocating to his farm in Daura, Katsina State, to take care of his cattle and concentrate on his business.
Penpushing reports that Buhari made this known while speaking at a valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) held at the State House Council Chamber on Wednesday in Abuja, Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The President who affirmed that he is happily relocating to his farm said since he became President, he has not had much time to take care of his cattle and concentrate on his business, stressing that shortly after handing over to President-elect Bola Tinubu on Monday he would have time to attend to the cattle
“I will also be happy to do the many things that I have not been able to do since May 29th, 2015. One of such is my favourite pastime of taking care of my cattle. I am proud to say we gave our best’, Buhari added
Penpushing further reports that he expressed appreciation to his ministers for their support throughout his eight years as president, noting that for those who will not be in office with the incoming administration they should provide their support
“In the course of our years together, ranging from our newest addition to the oldest members of the team for the past seven and half years, we have differed on many issues. I urge that we understand that those positions were for the collective good, and no one should keep grievances or carry these differences forward”, he said.
“For those of us that will not directly be in government, I know that I am one of such; I ask that we continue to provide our support, in whatever way we can, if called upon by our great party, All Progressives Congress (APC), that gave us the platform to stand and we must continue to support it in every way we can’, Buhari added.
Penpushing also reports that the outgoing President urged members of the cabinet to always check on him when he finally relocates to Daura, emphasisng that his hometown should not be seen as too distant because he is no longer President.
“I look forward to a great many of you, disproving that Daura has not become too distant because I am no longer Mr President. I wish all of us the best and hope to hear good news whenever any of our names are mentioned. Thank you, and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria”, he stated
Penpushing reports that Buhari in the same vein, expressed appreciation to staff members of the State House for the support they gave him throughout his administration which lasted for eight years.
