On Wednesday, President Muhammadu Buhari asserted that his administration had ended well and added, “We did our best.”
In his final Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting before leaving office in a few days, Buhari vowed that his cabinet will remain in place until May 29, 2023.
He took the chance to express his gratitude to the State House employees, with whom he had collaborated throughout the course of the previous eight years of his administration.
Buhari used the occasion to express gratitude to each and every minister for their tenacity in upholding the administration’s objectives.
He commanded them to provide same support, even from outside the government, to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the incoming president.
“I am proud to say we gave our best,” he continued.
He exhorted the ministers to do their work neatly and to stay away from last-minute scrambling that would jeopardize the good acts they had accomplished over the years.
He remarked that God deserved glory for keeping the team together while crediting God’s intervention for all the good work and well wishes received by his administration.
The departing President added that he anticipated seeing “a great many of you, proving that Daura has not grown too far away because I am no longer Mr. President.”
“I will also be happy to do the many things that I haven’t been able to do since May 29th, 2015,” he added. “One of these is my favorite past time, which is taking care of my cattle.”
