President Muhammadu Buhari seems to have given up on governance and Nigeria as he confessed that governance is “tough” and he is eager to go back to Daura his hometown in Kastina State.
Buhari’s lamentation was contained in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, when he received some governors of the All Progressives Congress, legislators, and political leaders at his residence in Daura, Katsina State.
The statement titled: ‘Enough is enough, President Buhari tells ASUU, urges lecturers to consider generational consequences.’

The president greatly lamented the toll his official duties have taken on him in the last seven years, Buhari told the visiting governors and political leaders that he had not been to his house in Daura for close to a year due to the demands of office.
“The observation that I abandoned my base was made by the Emir of Daura, Dr. Faruk Umar Faruk, at the eid prayer ground. He held the microphone and told everyone that the last time I was in Daura was during the Eid-el-Kabir of 2022,” Buhari began.
“In ten to eleven months’ time, I will come here. I have a better house in Kaduna, but it is too close to Abuja.”
The President explained that the schedule of work was much, saying he recently had to sympathise with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, who had to be away most of the time from his family.
“I am eager to go. I can tell you it has been tough. I am grateful to God that people appreciate the personal sacrifices we have been making. I wish the person who is coming after me the very best,” Buhari said.
