President Muhammadu Buhari has recounted how he was sent to jail during the military regime.
Buhari was in 1985 detained for over two years by then military president Ibrahim Babangida.
Speaking on Wednesday, December 6, during his visit to Kano, Buhari harped on how he ended up in jail after arresting and jailing others for corruption-related offences.
“When I was the military head of state, I arrested many people and jailed them for alleged corruption. In the end, I also ended in jail,” he said.
Buhari also urged Nigerians to understand the disparities between military and democratic dispensations.
He called for patience with the current economic woes in the country, assuring that “there will be light at the end of the tunnel”.
He said: “It is not easy for us to surmount all the obstacles against us; but knowing that the road to a promised land appeared rough, but all I want from Nigerians is to be patient.”
