In an interview with the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), former President Muhammadu Buhari said that he does not miss being in office. He stated that he was “harassed” during his time as president and that his best efforts were not good enough.
Buhari made these comments in a teaser of the interview posted on X on Sunday. When asked about what he misses from his time in office, he responded, “Miss. I don’t think I miss much.”
In December 2022, Buhari had said that he was doing his best for Nigerians but that it was not good enough. “I believe I’m trying my best, but still my best is not good enough,” he said. “I wonder if I am going to miss much. I think I’m being harassed.”
When asked about the nature of his illness when he was president, Buhari said, “I think only my daughter can honestly answer this question.”
The full version of the interview with Buhari will be aired on Monday at 10:30 pm. This is the first interview that Buhari has given since leaving office on May 29, 2023.
