I Joined Army To Escape Pressure To Marry — Buhari Says

President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that he joined the Nigerian army, where he retired as a major general, to escape the pressure of getting married.

Buhari disclosed this during a visit to the Emir of Daura, Faruk Faruk, after inaugurating two roads in Katsina state.

Aides to the president, Femi Adesina, further revealed that Buhari highlighted the years of battle during the Nigerian Civil War and some personal challenges he faced during the visit.

“President Buhari said that he secured his first job early after school to manage a co-operative in Daura, but had to escape and join the army when there was the pressure that he should get married.

“I told Governor Aminu Masari the story of how I left Daura to join the army. That was how God planned it. We make choices in life, but eventually, destiny is before God.

“I was at the war front during the civil war and saw how many died. Some fell right beside me. God kept me.

“Many bridges were blown just before we arrived at some places, and after we crossed.” I arrived at some places to see the bodies of my own colleagues, with whom we had been fighting. I am only alive today because of God’s grace.

“This opportunity to serve the nation comes from God. All over the world, Nigeria is known for its diversity, with different religions and cultures.

“We are also known because we have a huge population of millions of people.” “For the President of Nigeria, at this time, to come from Daura is the grace and mercy of God,” the statement read.
