President Muhammadu Buhari in a meeting with traditional rulers in Aso Rock on Monday joked that he was already considering what country “to run to” but for the improved rainy seasons in the last two years.
He spoke while receiving the National Council of Traditional Rulers led by the Sultan of Sokoto Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, TheCable reports.
“We are lucky that last year and this year the rainy season is good. If it were not good I must confide to you that I was considering which country to run to,” he said.
“But God answered the prayers of many Nigerians the rainy season last year was good and this year with the report I’m getting is good. We thank God for that otherwise there would have been a lot of problems in this country.”
This, he said, has led to good harvest and prevent famine in the country.
He said that he will continue to pursue programmes and projects “to better the lives of Nigerians in all spheres of life”.
