President Muhammadu Buhari has light-heartedly revealed that he almost fled the country into exile last year.
Buhari said this on Monday while receiving the National Council of Traditional Rulers at the Aso Villa.

“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.
