President Muhammadu Buhari has admitted that sometimes his age can get in the way of getting the job done.
According to NIGERIAN TRIBUNE, Buhari expressed regrets that he did not become the president at a younger age.
Addressing members of the Nigerian community in Johannesburg, South Africa, President Buhari said, ”How I wish I became Head of State when I was a governor, just a few years as a young man. Now at 72, there is a limit to what I can do. But what brought me there I think mainly is because I love this country. I was in the war front for 30 months during the civil war. I lost a lot of loyal people to me, I lost relatives. A lot of Nigerians did too.
“We lost about two million Nigerians just to keep Nigeria one. So, nobody should come now and tell us rubbish. We are going to remain one country. God has given us another opportunity to reorganise this country. Those who work hard, the society will pay them back.”
