Buhari commision 1

His Excellency, former President Muhammadu Buhari was at Transcorp Hilton Hotel to Launch a book written by Femi Adesina, his Special Adviser on Media on the Nigerian Legacy (2015-2023) and public presentation ceremony. Find the full text of his speech below.

It gives me great pleasure to be in Abuja, seat of the Federal
Government, in my first official outing since handing over power on May
29, 2023.

  1. I am delighted to be in our Federal Capital Territory, a place that served as home to me between 2015 and 2023, when fate thrust it upon me to be the President of our beloved country.
  2. Let me thank the President, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for finding time to attend this launching. Our relationship have always been correct and cordial.
  3. Let me also take this opportunity to thank all those who took trouble, sometimes undertaking arduous journeys to visit me in Daura. I thank you all.
  4. The two publications launched today; Working with Buhari:Reflections of a Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, 2015 – 2023,
    written by Femi Adesina, who served as my Media Adviser for eight years, and a volume of five books, Muhammadu Buhari: The Nigerian Legacy (2015 – 2023), edited by Dr. Udu Yakubu, are worthy to temporarily bring me out of resting in my native Daura, back to the city.
  5. These books presented today once again exemplify the sanctity of records, and the role they play in documenting facts and figures,
    achievements and milestones, either in our personal lives, or in the life of a nation.
  6. I told Adesina when he visited me in Daura with an advance copy of
    his book, he has done the nation a favour in writing it, as he has provided
    a one-stop shop on our stewardship to the country. The same has also
    been done by Dr. Udu Yakubu and his colleagues.
  7. Without documentation, revisionism wins. Human beings often have
    short memories, and unless events are recorded in cold print, some
    people would come and attempt to either distort, or even obliterate recent
    history.
  8. But the fact in our favour is that nothing was done under the veil of
    secrecy. We were as transparent and accountable as possible, being
    aware of the fact that posterity was the ultimate judge.
  9. We kept records of our stewardship, knowing that we would always
    be required to account for the trust entrusted to us. This event today is
    part of accounting for our two terms in office, and I thank those who have
    laboured day and night, to ensure that this history is recorded for now and
    the future.
  10. Government is a continuum. It is like a relay race. You run your
    course, and hand over the baton to the next person. This we have done,
    and the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu administration has my support and
    confidence, in the quest for us to have a country of our dreams, where
    there is emancipation for our teeming population.
  11. With the cumulative achievements of government after government,
    I believe we will get there in no distant time.
  12. In our journey to the desired destination, there will be hard decisions
    taken, and the people would bear some costs. We can only seek their
    understanding, and state that there was no intention to deliberately inflict
    pain and anguish on anyone.
  13. This is why I apologized to such people at the end of our time in
    office. Sacrifices are still being made now, and will continue to be part of
    our national life and development. Governments will continually seek the
    understanding and support of the people they lead, for our ultimate good
    and goal.
  14. Let revisionists not rejoice that they have the ultimate say in the bid
    to distort history. Facts and records will ultimately prove them wrong.
    When some people engage in deliberate falsehood and distortion of facts
    that pertain to our tenure in office, I take solace in the fact that records are
    there, and will remain inviolable.
  15. My Special thanks goes to the Chairman of the occasion, General
    Yakubu Gowon, GCFR, for always being there for us. The General, Sir, Iam most appreciative.
  16. Special thanks also goes to the co-Chairman of the Occasion, General I.B.M. Haruna, OFR, for his unflinching support and encouragement.
  17. My appreciation also goes to the book launcher, Alhaji Muhammed
    Indimi, OFR, for his continuous support.
  18. I am truly honoured and overwhelmed by those of you that have created time to be with us here today and I cannot thank you enough.
  19. I remain committed to our great party, the All Progressives Congress
    (APC), and the leadership of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. I have abiding
    faith in the strength, unity and future of Nigeria.
  20. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
    I thank you for listening.
