politics. This is what pushed me into partisan politics; to serve with
integrity. So I decided to try leadership as a civilian, after taking
off the military uniform,’’ he added.

more firm, focused and relentless in delivering results, especially in
securing the country, stimulating the economy to work for all, and

constitution to defend the country, and I will do the needful for the
country,’’ President Buhari said.
