Nigeria‘s number one man, President Muhammadu Buhari has said he cannot wait to leave office.

He expressed his eagerness to hand over in the next few days.

He hands over next Monday to the President-Elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Buhari spoke at the close of the Regimental Dinner organised in his honour by the Armed Forces at the newly commissioned Nigerian Armed Forces Officers’ Mess, Asokoro, Abuja.

The President was joined by Secretary to the Government of the Federation Boss Mustapha; the Minister of Defense, Major General Salihi Magashi; the Chief of Defense Staff General Lucky Irabor and the Service Chiefs.

Buhari, who unusually arrived the event late, apologised, pointing out that he had been under immense pressure catching up with the array of events lined out for the inauguration, coupled with wrapping up official duties of his office.

The President commissioned the new Nigerian Customs Service headquarters buildings in Maitama District of the FCT, before virtually inaugurating six other projects across the country.

He also presided over another extraordinary Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting from midday till late Tuesday evening, before heading out for the Regimental Dinner.

“Please, I will like to digress a bit from the prepared speech. I apologise most sincerely for keeping you waiting for about at least half an hour, actually I can hardly cope with the pressure and I’m desperately looking forward for the next six days”, he told the gathering just before saying good night at about 11pm,” he said.
