President Bola Tinubu has said that former President Muhammadu Buhari can no longer relocate to the Niger Republic as he wanted to because of the border closure with the neighbouring country.
Tinubu said this on Tuesday in Abuja while speaking at the public presentation of books on the administration of Buhari.
The books titled “Working with Buhari: Reflections of a Special Adviser, Media and Publicity ( 2015-2023)” and “Muhammadu Buhari: The Nigerian Legacy (2015-2023)” were written by the former President’s former Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina and other authors.
President Tinubu said that while Buhari had said while leaving office that he would retire to Daura, his hometown in Katsina State, far away from Abuja, and that if his supporters and friends denied him enough rest in Daura, he would run to the Republic of Niger, the former President could no longer escape to Niger Republic because of the border closure.
He said, “When President Buhari was leaving office, he said he would retire to Daura, far away from Abuja to enjoy his well-deserved retirement from public service.
“I remember he added that if his supporters and friends deny him enough rest in Daura, he would run to the Republic of Niger.
“Well, as you all know, he can no longer escape to the Niger Republic because of the border closure. I am therefore extremely happy to receive him here in Abuja.”
