President Muhammadu Buhari says he would have run away from Nigeria were the harvests not good for two consecutive years.

The president said but for the good rainy seasons, there would have been a lot of problems in the country.

He said this at the new Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Monday while recieving the National Council of Traditional Rulers led by the Sultan of Sokoto Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar.

Buhari said: “We are lucky that last year and this year, the rainy season is good. If it were not good, I must confide in you that I was considering which country to run to. But God answered the prayers of many Nigerians; the rainy season last year was good, and this year, with the report I’m getting, it is good. We thank God for that. Otherwise, there would have been a lot of problems in this country.”
