Former President Muhammadu Buhari says he did his best as Nigeria’s leader for all of eight years.
The immediate-past president in his first interview since handing over the reins of the nation’s leadership to President Bola Tinubu in May, said he would let people be the judge on whether his time as president “was good enough” or not.
“God gave me the opportunity to serve my country, but I did my best. But whether my best was good enough, I leave for people to judge,” Buhari said.
“Nigerians are extremely difficult. People know their rights. They think they should be there, not you.
“So, they monitor virtually your every step. And you have to struggle day and night to ensure that you are competent enough.”
Asked during the NTA interview if he felt his government may have been hijacked by a cabal, Buhari said “it must have been”, adding however that he was not sure anyone who broke the law was allowed to “walk away”.
