On Monday, President Muhammadu Buhari jokingly told traditional rulers that he would have looked for one country to run to if there had not been good agricultural produces in the country.
He thanked God that there have been good rains in the country in the past two years.
Without the rains, he said, that the problems facing the country would have been overwhelming as there would have been famine.
The traditional rulers paid a courtesy call on the President to thank God for his return to the country and recovery.
The meeting was held at the new Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, had paid a courtesy call on the President to thank God for his return to the country and recovery.
“We know our limitations, we have to continue to strengthen our constitution, to strengthen the resolve of our people to live together, work together.
“We are lucky this year that last year and this year the rainy season is good. If it were not good I must confide in you that I was considering which country to run to.
“But God answered the prayers of many Nigerians the rainy season last year was good and this year with the report I’m getting is good. We thank God for that otherwise there would have been a lot of problems in this country,” Buhari stated.
Culled from The Nation
