President Buhari States Reason Why He Was Removed From Office In 1985

Contrarily to what people think and why Pres.

He said this when he spoke at the Nigerian Army Guards Brigade Regimental Dinner. "I refused and gave my reasons and the next thing I knew I was removed and detained for three and half years. As a civilian president I will do my best and I’m telling you all these because you are part of the leadership of this great country and God willing we will remain great” he said.
