May 29: Buhari bids farewell in last address as president, He says Nigeria is better in 2023 than 2015

President Muhammadu Buhari, whose 8 years tenure ends on Monday, May 29, 2023, has said he was confident that he was leaving office with Nigeria better in 2023 than in 2015.

Buhari said this as he said his goodbye to Nigerians in his last broadcast on Sunday, May 28, 2023.

“As I retire home to Daura, Katsina State, I feel fulfilled that we have started the Nigeria Rebirth by taking the initial critical steps and I am convinced the incoming administration will quicken the pace of this walk to see a Nigeria that fulfils its destiny to be a great nation.”

He also said Nigerians have chosen well in electing Bola Ahmed Tinubu as his successor.

“To my brother, friend and fellow worker in the political terrain for the past ten years – Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu -, I congratulate you on the realisation of your dream, which was propelled by a burning passion to put Nigeria amongst the leading nations of the world.

“You have indeed worked for this day and God has crowned your efforts. I have no doubt that your passion for excellence, reliance on competence, fairness in relationships, commitment to equity, loyalty to the country and desire for Nigeria to be globally relevant would come through for you, under God’s guidance, as you lead our country to levels higher than I am leaving.

“You are the best candidate among all the contestants and Nigerians have chosen well.”
