Buhari Goes To Farm 4 Days A Week, Happy About His Crops, Animals – Says Shehu
The Senior Special Adviser to former President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, has said that the immediate past President has been going to his farm four days a week since he left office on May 29.
Shehu, who said this on Thursday in a statement marking Buhari’s 100 days since he left office, said the former President felt upbeat about how well his crops and his animals, which had not received as much attention as they needed, were now doing.
According to Shehu, Buhari chose to stay in his village, Daura in Katsina State, northwest Nigeria, to be far away from Abuja in order not to distract President Bola Tinubu’s administration, and in the hope that the distance would make it possible for him to have a good rest and to care for his farm.
He said, “This week, President Muhammadu Buhari clocked 100 days away from office after completing two terms of four years each as President of Nigeria.
“He chose to stay in Daura to be far away from Abuja in order not to distract the new APC administration and in the hope also that the distance will make it possible for him to have a good rest and to care for his farm which had not received as much attention as it needed while he was away.”
Sani noted that Buhari “goes to the farm four days of the week and is upbeat about how well the crops and his animals are now doing,” adding that the former President now gets a good measure of rest.
