President Muhammadu Buhari has applauded the performance of his administration in the last eight years, saying his government gave its best for the development of the country.
Buhari said this at a valedictory session of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Wednesday, May 24.
“I am proud to say we gave our best,” the President stated.
He further thanked all the ministers for their steadfastness in pursuing the goals of his administration, urging support for the incoming President, Bola Tinubu, even from outside government.
President Buhari also appreciated the ministers for working closely together, despite many odds and challenges, and sustaining the synergy that translated into many achievements.

Buhari, however, 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.
The President added: “In the cause 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.
“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.”
President Buhari, therefore, attributed all the good work and goodwill received by his administration to God’s intervention
