Ex-president Muhammadu Buhari says he did his best as Nigeria’s leader for all eight years.
Buhari, in his first interview since handing over the leadership to President Bola Tinubu in May, said he would let people be the judge of his presidency.
Buhari said, “God gave me the opportunity to serve my country, but I did my best. But whether my best was good enough, I leave it for people to judge.”
“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 interview if he felt his government may have been hijacked by a cabal, Buhari said, “It must have been.” However, he was not sure anyone who broke the law was allowed to “walk away”.
