President Muhammadu Buhari said he longed to return to his favourite pastime of tending cattle.
Buhari said this during Wednesday’s valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
In a statement by Femi Adesina, the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Buhari lauded his cabinet members for their support over the last eight years.
“I also thank God for the strength and for keeping us together. I look forward to many of you disproving that Daura has not become too distant because I am no longer Mr President.
“I will also be happy to do the many things that I have not been able to do since May 29, 2015. One of such is my favourite pastime of taking care of my cattle.
“I wish all of us the best and hope to hear good news whenever our names are mentioned. Thank you, and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he stated.
In 2015, Buhari was elected as Nigeria’s president and re-elected in 2019.
On Monday, May 29, the president-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will be sworn in.
