The former president, however, urged Nigerians to give their support to the new administration of President Bola Tinubu
In the statement titled, ‘Ex-President Buhari Salutes Muslims on Eid Ul Adha and Wishes Muslims Successful Hajj’, the former president wished Nigerian Muslims a happy Eid and, to those on pilgrimage, Hajj Mabrur, and a safe return home.
He added that “leadership is a challenging task that demands the sacrifices and support of the citizens.”
The Katsina-born former head of state completed his two-term tenure of eight years and handed over power to Tinubu on May 29, 2023.
Buhari was also Nigeria’s military leader between December 1983 and August 1985.
