President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed what prompted his sojourn into politics after he released from prison.
The President revealed this when he received the youths leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC, who came from across the country to pay him a visit in Abuja on Friday, Buhari said he took interest in politics after a clean bill on his integrity by those who detained him after the 1985 military coup and who thoroughly checked his record as governor of the North East, Minister of Petroleum and Head of State and found nothing incriminating.
“After I was released and nothing was found on me I took interest in politics. This is what pushed me into partisan politics; to serve with integrity. So I decided to try leadership as a civilian, after taking off the military uniform,’’ he added.
