My govt must’ve been hijacked by cabal – Buhari


Nigeria’s former President, Muhammadu Buhari has said there is a possibility that his eight-year administration which spanned through 2015 to 2023 may have lost grip of power to a cabal.

Buhari stated this in a recent interview with the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), where he was asked a question pertaining to his administration being hijacked by a cabal.

“it must have been,” Buhari said, adding that he was not sure anyone who breached the law was allowed to “walk away.”

The former President also stated that he was too preoccupied with local matters to be bothered with foreign issues as president while acknowledging that his biggest challenge was securing the country.

Buhari said, “God gave me the opportunity to serve my country, but I did my best. But whether my best was good enough, I leave it for people to judge.”

He also noted that he did not try to compete with Nigeria’s wealthy class by acquiring land, houses, and cars during his time as Nigeria’s leader but noted that this was the reason he was “living in peace” after exiting government.

According to the former President, some Nigerians attempted to set a trap for him by trying to ambush him with certain opportunities.

He said he avoided the trap because he knew that once they knew he had been compromised, they would take advantage of the situation to milk the country.

Recall that the former First Lady, Aisha Buhari, first raised the allegation of a cabal taking over Buhari’s administration in 2016, but her husband disregarded it.
