I Would Have Moved To Niger Republic If Borders Were Open – Buhari



⁣Former President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said he still gets visitors from various parts of the country despite living as far away from the country’s capital as possible. ⁣

In an interview on NTA’s Conversations With History aired Monday night, Buhari said, “People charter buses and come to see me from time to time. I thought I had stayed as far away from Abuja as possible but they still come. ⁣

Buhari went on to say that he would have considered relocating to neighboring Niger if the borders were open. “I would have gone to Niger if the borders were opened,” he said.

Earlier, the Daura-born former Head of State said he did not miss being in power much.⁣

He remarked, “Miss? I don’t think I miss much.” ⁣

In December 2022, six months before handing over power to his successor, Bola Tinubu, Buhari said he would not miss his time as President of Nigeria because his best was not good enough for Nigerians.⁣

“I believe I’m trying my best, but still my best is not good enough. I wonder if I am going to miss much. I think I’m being harassed,” he stated.
