The President, stated this when he received some governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC), legislators and political leaders at his residence in Daura, Katsina State,
The President told the governors and political leaders that he had not been to his house in Daura for close to a year due to the demands of office.
“The observation that I abandoned my base was made by the Emir of Daura, Dr Faruk Umar Faruk, at the eid prayer ground. He held the microphone and told everyone that the last time I was in Daura was during the Eid-el-Kabir of 2021,” he added.
President Buhari said he would retire to Daura, not Kaduna, where he had a better house.
“In ten to eleven months time, I will come here. I have a better house in Kaduna, but it is too close to Abuja,’’ he said.
“By this time next year, I would have made the most out of the two terms, and the remaining months I will do my best,” the President noted.
The President said relative to the resources available, and compared to the last administration, the government had done well in many areas, particularly in infrastructure.
On security, the President said the North West had posed more challenges, and some success had been recorded in other regions, North East and South South.
President Buhari advised some indigenes in the South South to stop hurting national assets, which also affect their livelihood.

“I wish the person who is coming after me the very best,” he said.
The President explained that the schedule of work was much, saying he recently had to sympathise with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyema, who had to be away most of the time from his family.
