Age is telling on me, working for six hours is no joke, President Muhammadu Buhari revealed in an interview on Thursday with the Nigeria Television Authority, (NTA).
The 79-year-old President also said that he looks forward to the next 17 months remaining in his tenure when he will be less busy like his colleagues.
According to Buhari in the interview with NTA as monitored by reporter, he said:
“About my age, I see my colleagues, they are now resting, and I assure you that I look forward to the next 17 months when I too will be less busy.
“The age is telling on me, working now for six, seven to eight hours per day in the office is no joke — there are questions of executive council, memos from as many states as possible to be considered virtually every week. Really, it’s a lot of hard work, but as I’ve said, I asked for it and I cannot complain.
“I have been a governor, I have been a minister, and I’m in my second term as president. So, I’ve gone through all the system and really, what else can I do for this country? I have given my best.”, Buhari said.Click To Join HGS Media Plus On Telegram
