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.
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.
