Former President Muhammadu Buhari has said his eight-year administration may have been taken over by a cabal.
Buhari said this during a recent interview with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA).
Speaking about the possibility of losing power to the clique, the former president said that insinuations were possible.
Recall that former First Lady Aisha Buhari first made allegations in 2016, but her husband downplayed them.
However, when the question was asked again during the NTA interview, Buhari said, “it had to be.”
However, he added that he was not sure whether anyone who violated the law was allowed to “leave.”
On leading the country, he said: “God gave me the opportunity to serve my country, but I gave it my all. But whether I did my best was good enough, I leave to people to judge.
The former president also said that he was too busy with local affairs to worry about foreign affairs as president. He said his biggest challenge is securing the country.
Buhari said he did not try to compete with Nigeria’s wealthy class by acquiring land, houses and cars when he was Nigeria’s leader, explaining that this was the reason he “lived in peace” after leaving the government.
He alleged that some Nigerians tried to trap him by offering him some opportunities but he avoided the trap because he knew that once they found out he was compromised, they would take advantage of the situation to milk the country.
