Former President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, opened up on why he left Daura, Katsina home state, for London.

Buhari disclosed that he left Daura for London because he wanted to stay in a quiet place.

He explained that visitors have been trooping to visit him while in his hometown of Daura.

A statement by Buhari’s ex-media aide, Garba Shehu, read, “He chose to go home in Daura hoping to find the type of quiet he wished for himself, but realizing that this was not the case, visitors trooping in morning, day and night, he moved out to a more distant place.

“It remains his wish that he be allowed to have his needed rest, and for the Tinubu administration to have the right atmosphere to work on the realisation of the promises they made.”

Following the end of his administration, Buhari returned to his hometown of Daura.

However, the president had left Nigeria for London, after which, he met with President Bola Tinubu.
