The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has said he looks forward to taking charge of his farm in 2023 when his tenure ends.
He, however, said he will do his best to advance the interest of the nation and its people before the time comes.
Buhari said this while marking his 79th birthday in Istanbul, Turkey, where he is scheduled to participate in the Turkey-Africa Partnership Summit, hosted by his Turkish counterpart, Tayyip Recep Erdogan.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
Shehu quoted the President as saying, “I thought that being away from Abuja I will escape these things. The Guards Brigade had written to tell me what they wanted to do on this day. Now here you are doing this far away from home.
“I look forward to the year 2023 when I finish, to go home to take charge of my farm. Between now and that time, I will do the best that is possible to advance the interest of the nation and its people, and carry out my duties as prescribed by the Constitution.”
