Why I ran away from Daura –Buhari

Former President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed why he left his native home of Daura, Katsina State, for London.

Buhari said he left he took the step because he wanted to stay in a quiet place.

He explained that visitors had been trooping to visit him at Daura.

A statement by Buhari’s ex-media aide, Garba Shehu, reads: “He chose to go home in Daura hoping to find the type of quiet he wished for himself, but realizing that this was not the case, visitors trooping in morning, day and night, he moved out to a more distant place.

“It remains his wish that he be allowed to have his needed rest, and for the Tinubu administration to have the right atmosphere to work on the realisation of the promises they made”, Shehu said.

At the expiration of his tenure, Buhari had returned to his home town of Daura.

However, the president recently left Nigeria for London, after which he met with President Bola Tinubu.
