President Bola Tinubu has affirmed that his predecessor, Muhammadu Buhari, has maintained a hands-off approach to the affairs of his administration since leaving office on May 29, 2023.
Tinubu made this statement on Tuesday during the public presentation of two books documenting his administration.
President Tinubu expressed gratitude to the organizers for providing an opportunity to reunite with former President Buhari, emphasizing that Buhari has upheld the promise of remaining distant in his hometown, Daura, without interfering in the country’s affairs.
“You serve our country with dedication and uncommon zeal. I was talking to somebody last night that I will be at this book launch and he said oh, I remember you sold to us Buhari. And I said, stop where you are, I’m not talking to you about a disclaimer. I’m talking to you about a programme that I really appreciated and will continue to appreciate,” he said.
He also commended Mr Adesina for writing the book, saying “The author of the book, they might have done their best. But what Nigeria will gain from the book is what history must do and that history is in the book. And I’m glad history has been reproduced, reintroduced and it is part of the curriculum in various schools and it will be emphasized. I promise you.”
