God, technology made me president – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday described himself as a lucky man given the various offices he had held even before he eventually became the President.

The President also asked Nigerians hurt by his policies for a pardon, saying he is also human. The President has about 36 days to leave office.

Speaking when he hosted a controlled number of guests at the ninth and his final Sallah homage as President at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Buhari described himself as a lucky and fulfilled politician, having served as military Governor of Borno State in 1976, Minister of Petroleum Resources in the same year and one-time Head of State.

He thanked citizens for “tolerating” his eight-year regime.

He stated, “Those that think that I have hurt them so much, please pardon me. I think this is a very good coincidence for me to say goodbye to you and thank you for tolerating me for more than seven and a half years.

“I honestly consider myself very lucky; I was made a governor, minister of petroleum, Head of State, then after three attempts, God, through technology and PVC, made me President. I think God has given me an incredible opportunity to serve as your President. And I thank God for that.

“So, please, whoever feels I have done wrong to them, we are all humans. There is no doubt I hurt some people and I wish you will pardon me. And those that think that I have hurt them so much, please pardon me.”
