Buhari says he will retire to his farm after tenure ends —

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has announced that at the end of his second term he will retire to his farm to look after his cattle.

“I have never left my farm. I still have some cattle. I’ll go to my farm every day and try to keep myself busy, “Buhari told a team of Arise TV journalists who interviewed him.

The interview was broadcast on the TV station Thursday morning.

Aside from his retirement plans, Buhari answered questions on various other topics including the secessionist agitation in the southeast, the cessation of Twitter operations, and #EndSARS.

While the Nigerian leader hesitated and ultimately decided to “To keep this to me” if Twitter’s suspension in the country is lifted, he claimed, without providing evidence, that the #EndSARS protests against police brutality in various cities in October 2020 were aimed at remove him from office.

The government has always blamed the government’s opponents for supporting the protests. Many young people who mobilized others for the protests have their bank accounts blocked.

Twitter and its co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey were anointed for escalating and funding the protests. Dorsey, like many famous people around the world, tweeted to support the protests led by young Nigerians.
