I have suffered in politics and military – Presidency

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he has suffered both
in politics and in the military.
The President said that his journey in politics had been challenging.
He said this when he played host to the delegation of residents in
Abuja led by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory,
Mohammed Bello who paid him Sallah homage in his official
residence, Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Buhari explained further that he was working hard for the collective
interest of the country and that enough had been invested into the
country to ensure it remained one entity.
He said, “I am very pleased that we are working very hard
collectively as Nigerians and that God in his infinite mercy who
knows what is in the heart and not by mouth, will continue to guide
us so that we accommodate each other at all times. This country
is blessed on human and material resources.”
He also said that he started and completed the Ramadan fast
despite the apprehension in some quarters as a result of his health
condition.
“What we realized between 1999-2013 as I have always said we
have never realized it. It is on record that we were producing 2.2
million barrels per day on the average, at the cost of $100 per
barrel.
“It went up to $143 per barrel and then I think it stabilized between
$80 and $90, Nigeria has never received so much money and we
thank God that we have survived the crisis in no time.
“It is amazing that we are here because we tried four times, we
ended up three times at the Supreme Court and it is no joke. I have
suffered for this constituency just like I suffered in the Military.
“ I walked from the northern border to the sea virtually on foot,
because every culvert and bridge were blown up, so we had to
walk and carry our luggage.
“I think we have invested so much in this country and we will
continue to pray that we stay together and let us develop the
necessary confidence, work together as a people, this country is
great. Let us work together so that we can save a lot more and
exploit more of the resources that were abandoned so many years
ago.
“I am very grateful to the ministers and church leadership that
came to say happy Eid-Filtri to those of us that have been fasting.
A lot of people asked me not to fast on health grounds I can
default I refused because I know the value in fasting, I cannot miss
it once I can do it.
“Last year, I didn’t (fast) because I was on health vacation but this
year I have done it and I thank God because it has helped me to be
much more healthier to give me the time that I need to attend to
national issues.
“Please in your constituencies; emphasize what I said about 30
years ago, we don’t have another country except Nigeria. We may
as well remain here and salvage it together, there is nothing else
we can do. Even those that had gone out are now trying to come
back because they are not wanted out there.
“I wish all the resources they had, they had deployed it here, it
would have been much better. So thank you very much and please
try to persuade your constituencies to work much harder away
from individualism and sectionalism.

Can the south east (Igbo speaking tribe) produce the next Nigerian President come 2023?
