President Muhammadu Buhari says he cannot wait to head to his hometown in Daura, Katsina state, after he hands over on May 29.

Buhari spoke on Friday at his ninth and final Sallah celebration at the presidential villa, Abuja.

The president described himself as being lucky to have led Nigeria in various capacities.

He also thanked the residents of Abuja for “tolerating him” in the last seven and a half years.

“I can’t wait to go home. I deliberately arranged to be as far away as possible from you people,” he said.

“I have got what I have asked and will quietly retire to my home town in Daura.”

On Wednesday, the Nigerian president returned to Abuja after an eight-day official visit to Saudi Arabia.

The president performed Umrah (lesser hajj), a religious pilgrimage for Muslims, while in the country.
