President Muhammadu Buhari has 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 at the presidential villa on Monday.

“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 once again blamed the “mismanagement of national resources” over the years for the economic woes bedeviling Nigeria.

He said that he will continue to pursue programmes and projects “to better the lives of Nigerians in all spheres of life”.

Buhari further said all hands are on deck to completely secure Nigeria so as to develop it further.
