Why I ran away from Daura – Ex-President Buhari

Nigeria’s former president, Muhammadu Buhari said he travelled to London, United Kingdom to rest after visitors and well-wishers continued to disturb him in his Daura home.

In a statement released on Thursday by his media aide Garba Shehu, Buhari said he hoped to find some peace and quiet in order “to have his needed rest” in his hometown in Katsina but was hindered by individuals who sought to pay him goodwill visits.

Shehu also said that the former president’s overseas travel was an added advantage to enable President Bola Tinubu’s government to have the right atmosphere to work on their campaign promises.

The statement read in part; “He chose to go home in Daura hoping to find the type of quiet he wished for himself, but realising 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.”
