The President, and commander in chief of the armed forces of the federal republic of Nigeria Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has described his seven years in office as “tough” saying “I am eager to go.”
This was as he called on the Academic Staff Union of Universities to consider the plight of the future generations of the country as the strike stretches into the fifth month.
He made this announcement in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
Buhari said this when he received some governors of the All Progressives Congress, legislators, and political leaders at his residence in Daura, Katsina State.
The statement is titled ‘Enough is enough, President Buhari tells ASUU, urges lecturers to consider generational consequences.’
The President explained that the schedule of work was much, saying he recently had to sympathize with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, who had to be away most of the time from his family.
He claimed that relative to the resources available, and compared to the last administration, the government had done well in many areas, particularly in infrastructure.
“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.”
