Old Age Will Limit My Performance – Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has admitted that his age would limit his performance as the President of the country. Buhari, who was   a military governor at 33 and Head of State   at the age of 40, said he would have loved being a President when he was at a younger age . He will be 73 on December 17, 2015.

This is what he said,
“I wish I became Head of State when I was a governor, just a few years as a young man. Now at 72, there is a limit to what I can do.”

Despite his advancement in age however, Buhari gave assurance that his administration would make a difference. Buhari explained that   what brought him to his current position was his love for the country.

He recalled that he was in the war front for 30 months during the civil war, adding that like any other Nigerian, he lost relatives and loyal people to the war.

Buhari said considering the fact that   two million Nigerians died during the war, nobody should come forward to talk about a breakup of the country. He stressed that Nigeria would remain one country since God had given him another opportunity to reorganise its affairs.

The President promised   that his administration would “kill” corruption before it wrecks the nation. He added that the All Progressives Congress government which he   leads was determined to secure the country and improve its economy.
