Nigeria: Nigerians harmed by the regime’s policies receive an apology from Buhari
By Ahmad Hadizat Omayoza, MAMOS Nigeria
Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), the President, has only 38 days left in office. on Friday, in Abuja, asked Nigerians hurt by his strategies for an exculpation.
After serving as military governor of Borno State in 1976, Minister of Petroleum Resources in the same year, and Head of State for a brief period (1983–1985), Buhari described himself as a fortunate and content politician.
He thanked the people for “tolerating” his eight-year rule, which began on May 29, 2015, when he was sworn in as president.
“Those that feel that I have harmed them so much, if it’s not too much trouble, excuse me,” Buhari said when he facilitated a controlled number of visitors at the 10th and last Sallah tribute held at the Official Estate, Abuja.
“I think it’s a very good coincidence for me to say goodbye to you and thank you for tolerating me for more than seven and a half years,” I said.
“I honestly believe I am extremely fortunate; I was elected governor, petroleum minister, and uniformed head of state. After three attempts, God, technology, and PVC helped me become president. I think God has offered me a fantastic chance to act as your leader. And for that, I praise God.
Therefore, kindly remind anyone who believes I have wronged them that we are all human. There is no question I hurt certain individuals and I wish you will excuse me. And the people who think I’ve hurt them too much, please forgive me,” the president pleaded.
The president reiterated his desire to avoid the FCT and wash his hands of party politics for a while when discussing his retirement plans.
“I am counting the days,” he declared. Democracy is beneficial; Otherwise, how can someone from the opposing party serve as president twice? It takes eight kilometers to reach the Niger Republic from my hometown.
“I assure you, I have deliberately made arrangements to be as far away from you as possible, not because I don’t appreciate the love you’ve shown me, but because I believe I’ve gotten what I asked for and would rather quietly retire to my hometown (Daura, Katsina),”
The president argued that all Supreme Court justices in the election cases he brought to the court in 2003, 2007 and 2011 were all Northern Muslims, refuting the narrative that nepotism and ethnic sentiments prevent justice from being found in courts. He still lost.
