Why millions of Nigerians will miss Buhari after 2023 – Ex-minister

President Muhammadu Buhari President Muhammadu Buhari

Former Minister of Education, Yerima Abdullahi has stated that Nigerians will miss President Muhammadu Buhari when his tenure ends in 2023.

According to him, Nigerians will miss the former military ruler because he is a man of integrity whose deeds in the last six years can't be matched by any other.

He made the comment in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) noting that leaders like Buhari are rare.

The former Minister said that most Nigerian leaders lack the leadership qualities Buhari possessed, especially his hard stand against corruption and his exemplary lifestyle.

According to Abdullahi, Buhari has been through a lot while trying to serve Nigerians.

He said: “Buhari will be missed after 2023, and there are millions of Nigerians who will because when he says it is white, it is white.

“Like him or not, you have to accept that Buhari has really done well for the country and has been through a lot to serve the nation.

“You don’t have so many of such leaders in the country. He is not a ‘Maradona’, he is not. He says things the way they are. It is very rare you find a leader with such courage.”
