President Muhammadu Buhari at a valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) at the State House, Wednesday, May 24, 2023, Abuja, FCT, appreciated his Ministers and State House staff, who have worked with him since 2015.

ConsumerConnect reports Buhari, who will be handing over the reins to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, President-elect, Monday, May 29, declared that he is proud that his administration gave their best to Nigerians.

Mr. Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, also stated the President, at the valedictory session in the State House Council Chamber, commended all the Ministers for their steadfastness in pursuing the goals of the administration.

He urged them for support of the incoming President in whatever capacity they can.

“I am proud to say we gave our best,” said Buhari.

The President equally directed the Ministers to tidy up their work and avoid last-minute rush that could compromise the good deeds they had done over the years.

Adesina further noted in the statement: “In the course of our years together, ranging from our newest addition to the oldest members of the team for the past seven and half years, we have differed on many issues.

“I urge that we understand that those positions were for the collective good, and no one should keep grievances, or carry these differences forward.”

Buhari urged the outgoing FEC members: “For those of us that will not directly be in government, I know that I am one of such, I ask that we continue to provide our support, in whatever way we can.

“If called upon by our great party, All Progressives Congress (APC) that gave us the platform to stand and we must continue to support it in every way we can.”

He as well attributed “all the good work and goodwill” received by the administration to God’s intervention.

“I also thank God for the strength and for keeping us together.

“I will also be happy to do the many things that I have not been able to since May 29th, 2015, one of such is my favorite pastime of taking care of my cattle.”

Buhari added: “I wish all of us the best and hope to hear good news whenever any of our names are mentioned. Thank you and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
