President Muhammadu Buhari has asked Nigerians to forgive him in any way he has hurt them.
Speaking while marking his final Sallah celebration as president, Buhari said “all those that I have hurt, I ask that they pardon me”.
He said he accepts all the criticism of his administration in good faith, noting that it is part of leadership.
Buhari said, “God gave me an incredible opportunity to serve the country. We are all humans, if I have hurt some people along the line of my service to the country, I ask that they pardon me.
“I think it is a good coincidence for me to say goodbye to you, and thank you for tolerating me for almost eight years.”
He said the flaunting of ethnic and religious cards in elections was rubbish, stressing that the presiding justices at the Supreme Court that squashed his election cases were Muslims, from the north, Zaria in Kaduna state, Niger, and Jigawa.
“I dared the politicians and ended up at the supreme court three times. They laughed at me, and I responded, ‘God dey’. “God sent technology to my rescue, with permanent voter’s cards (PVC). The fraudulent people became unemployed,” he said.
On security, the President said there have been improvements, adding that “insecurity in FCT has been marginalised”.
“It is good to reflect on what used to happen here, in FCT, especially on security.
“Security is not only about the North East, but it also spread to the FCT and all over the country,” he said.
“Those who wanted to make our lives uncomfortable reached the FCT, and they have been marginalised.”
