Former President, Muhammadu Buhari has insisted that he did nothing under the veil of secrecy while in office.
Buhari said he ran a transparent government and was as accountable as possible during his eight years as President.
Recall that Buhari handed over to President Bola Tinubu, his party man, on May 29, 2023.
The former President spoke at the launch of two publications: ‘Working with Buhari: Reflections of a Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, 2015 – 2023, written by Femi Adesina, and a volume of five books, ‘Muhammadu Buhari: The Nigerian Legacy’, (2015 – 2023), edited by Dr. Udu Yakubu.
“But the fact in our favour is that nothing was done under the veil of secrecy. We were as transparent and accountable as possible, being aware of the fact that posterity was the ultimate judge,” Buhari said.
“We kept records of our stewardship, knowing that we would always be required to account for the trust entrusted to us.
“This event today is part of accounting for our two terms in office, and I thank those who have laboured day and night, to ensure that this history is recorded for now and the future.
“Government is a continuum. It is like a relay race. You run your course, and hand over the baton to the next person,” he said.
