Moreover, Buhari expressed some relief to know that the COVID-19 with its restriction on movement has reduced the number of persons who visit him in a day.
”I assure you that I’m looking forward to the next 17 months when I too would have to be less busy.
“Age is telling on me, working now for 6,7,8 hours a day in the office is no joke. Questions of executive council memos from as many states as possible to be considered virtually every week.
”So, really it is a lot of hard work, but I asked for it and I cannot complain.
“Yes, I think COVID-19 has come to my rescue in the sense that the amount of people that you need to see, can’t see you so that is losing no time and about my age, yes, I see my colleagues, they are now resting.”
Meanwhile, President Buhari had spoken on a favourite presidential candidate ahead of the general elections coming up in 2023.
The president spoke on this in an exclusive interview with Channels Television aired on Wednesday night, January 5.
President Buhari, however, did not disclose the identity of his favourite presidential candidate, expressing fear that he may be “eliminated” if he was known.
