Buhari Reveals His Next Move After Successfully Transitioning Power To The Next President of Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari said he longed to return to his favorite pastime of tending cattle during Wednesday's valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).

In a statement by Femi Adesina, the Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Buhari lauded his cabinet members for their support over the last eight years.

“I also thank God for the strength and for keeping us together. I look forward to many of you disproving that Daura has not become too distant because I am no longer Mr President.

"I can't wait to return to my roots and spend my days tending to my cattle," Buhari said. "It is a simple life, but it is a life that I love."

Buhari, who is a Fulani herdsman by tribe, has spoken about his love of cattle herding in the past. In a 2015 interview, he said that he "grew up with cattle" and that "it is in my blood."

Buhari's love of cattle herding is not shared by everyone in Nigeria. Some people view cattle herding as a primitive and destructive practice. They argue that cattle herdsmen are responsible for the destruction of farmlands and the displacement of people.

Buhari has acknowledged the challenges associated with cattle herding, but he has also defended the practice. He has said that cattle herding is a way of life for many Nigerians and that it should be respected.

It is unclear when Buhari will be able to return to his favorite pastime of tending cattle. He is currently in the final year of his second term as president. However, he has said that he plans to retire to his hometown of Daura after leaving office.

If Buhari is able to return to his cattle herding, it would be a symbolic return to his roots. It would also be a reminder of the importance of traditional ways of life in Nigeria.
