The outgoing President, Muhammadu Buhari, has apologised to Nigerians over the negative impact some of his economic policies inflicted on them.
Buhari made this known during his farewell broadcast to the nation on Sunday.
The president noted that some of his policies caused “temporary pain and suffering” to Nigerians.
He stressed, “some of the decisions were difficult choices, the measures were taken for the overall good of the country.”
Buhari maintained, “In the course of revamping the economy, we made some difficult choices, most of which yielded the desired results.
“Some of the measures led to temporary pain and suffering for which I sincerely apologise to my fellow countrymen, but the measures were taken for the overall good of the country,” he explained.
Buhari will hand over power to Bola Tinubu, the president-elect, on May 29.
