God Has Been Good To Me – Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari says the opportunity to be alive and be Nigeria’s president at this time is a demonstration of God’s goodness to him
“For the President of Nigeria, at this time, to come from Daura is the grace and mercy of God,” Mr Buhari said on Friday when he visited the Emir of Daura, Faruk Umar Faruk, at his palace.
Highlighting his experiences during the Nigerian Civil War, Mr Buhari, a retired Nigerian Army general, recalled some testimonies of divine protection and guidance.
“I was at the war front during the civil war, and saw how many died. Some fell right beside me. God kept me.
“Many bridges were blown just before we arrived at some places, and after we crossed. I arrived at some places to see bodies of my own colleagues that we were fighting together. I am alive today only by God’s grace,” the president narrated.
Mr Buhari visited the traditional ruler after inaugurating two projects constructed by the Katsina State government in the emirate, according to a statement by Femi Adesina, the president’s spokesman.
