Buhari to return to his farm after tenure.
President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he is looking forward to returning to his farm as his second term comes to a conclusion.
The President made the statement during a surprise party for his 79th birthday, which took place yesterday, December 17, at the Nigerian embassy in Istanbul, Turkey.
According to Buhari’s media aide, Garba Shehu, the Nigerian leader began the day by cutting a birthday cake in national colors, green-white-green, while Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, paid respect on behalf of the ministers and the rest of the delegation.
The President, who reiterated his commitment to doing his best for Nigeria, added that he is looking forward to returning to his farm in 2023 to care for his crops and livestock.
“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.”
