President Buhari has revealed that he prayed very hard to God to make him the leader of the Republic of Nigeria.
Buhari made this revelation while speaking with top notch professionals in the United states of America.
Mr. President said “But I prayed so hard for God to make me President. I ran in 2003, 2007, 2011, and in 2015, He did. And see what I met on ground. But I can’t complain, since I prayed for the job. In the military, I rose from 2nd Lieutenant to Major-General. I was military governor in 1975 over a state that is now six states. I was head of state, got detained for three years, and headed the Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF), which had N53 billion of that time in Nigerian banks.
“God has been very good to me, so I can’t complain. If I feel hurt by anybody, I ask God to help me forgive. He has done so much for me.
“After 16 years of a different party in government, no party will come and have things easy. It’s human. We need quality hands to run Nigeria, and we will utilize them. I will like to welcome you home when it’s time. But I’ll like you to be ready.”
He also said Nigeria is experiencing economic challenges because the past leaders refused to save for the rainy day.
Buhari, who praised the professionals for flying the flag of Nigeria high, said the amount of money they remit has helped the country’s economy.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Diaspora Matters and International Relation, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, described the professionals as the top 15 best people God ever created.
President Buhari also called on nations in the western world to return funds which were looted from Nigeria and stashed in their countries.
