I don’t expect Nigerians to appreciate me – Buhari


Muhammadu Buhari

President Buhari has said that he does not expect Nigerians to appreciate him when he leaves office, but only for them to realise that he has done his best.

Talking about his eagerness to handover power, he said: “Yes, because, look, as you know I have been a governor.

“I have been a minister and I’m in my second term as President. So, I have gone through the system. And really, what else can I do with this country?

“I have given my best and I hope after I leave Nigerians will reflect and at least not show appreciation.

“I’m not expecting any appreciation. But what I’m expecting is for Nigerians to say yes, this man has done his best.

“This is the most I’m expecting from Nigerians. But it’s no joke. I’m telling you.

“Look at the problem we’re having in the South-East now. How many police stations were taken over, weapons missing?

“We closed the border with Benin, we closed the border with Niger. But we had to accept the reality that the weapons are coming from our own armories.

“So, the main problem is, I hope I will leave a more secure Nigeria than what it is now.”
