Former President Buhari concedes that there might have been a hijacking of his administration at certain times..

    Former President Muhammadu Buhari asserted yesterday that he exerted his best efforts during his eight-year governance of Nigeria, acknowledging uncertainty about achieving anticipated results. Admitting a potential hijacking of his administration, he defended endorsing the controversial naira redesign policy to safeguard his integrity and emphasize the absence of shortcuts to success.


    In his initial interview since stepping down six months ago, Buhari described Nigerians as challenging to govern, stating they often resist doing the right thing. When questioned about the integrity of those around him, he dismissed it as “their problem” and questioned the critics’ anti-corruption efforts.

    Addressing the alleged cabal that hijacked his government, Buhari admitted it might have happened but emphasized that rule violations did not go unpunished. He affirmed allowing individuals to carry out their assigned tasks and expressed contentment with his post-presidential life, emphasizing his lack of nostalgia for the government.

    Buhari stated he did not miss foreign affairs during his presidency, focusing primarily on local matters, especially the challenge of securing the country. He highlighted his modest lifestyle, avoiding competition with the wealthy class to prevent compromising his integrity. Buhari explained that he resisted certain opportunities that could have compromised him, fearing they would exploit the situation for personal gain.

    Regarding the criticized naira policy, Buhari defended it as a move to emphasize the absence of shortcuts in leadership. He acknowledged the court challenge by governors from his party to reverse the policy and discussed the Ethiopian/Nigerian Air issue, attributing any shortcomings to granting people too much autonomy.
