"Eagerly Anticipated Leaving Office": Buhari Reflects on Post-Presidential Life

Former Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari recently shared insights into his post-presidential life after eight years in office. Speaking in an interview with NTA, Buhari expressed contentment with leaving the presidency, highlighting the satisfaction of having ample time to dedicate to his farm.

In the interview, the ex-president conveyed that he doesn’t find himself missing many aspects of his time in office but expressed gratitude for the opportunity to lead the Nigerian people. He remarked, “I eagerly anticipated leaving office, and I am pleased that I did. Returning to my village, tending to my farm, and engaging in exercise while observing the animals have become part of my routine. I wake up and go about my day at my own pace.”

While recognizing the diversity of opinions about his presidency, Buhari expressed thanks to God for the chance to serve his country. He acknowledged doing his best during his tenure but emphasized that the judgment of whether it was sufficient ultimately lies in the hands of the people.

Discussing his achievements over the eight-year period, Buhari underscored his commitment to addressing insecurity, economic challenges, and corruption. He specifically mentioned efforts in the Northeast region to counter the influence of Boko Haram.
