President says he's aware of Nigeria's problem

The president said his military past has trained him to take his time to lead the country with a clear conscience.

The president made the reassurance while hosting chieftains of the ruling All Progressives' Congress (APC) to a dinner party in Abuja on Thursday, January 18, 2018.

He said, "I felt I had to invite you to let us eat together and I tell you that I am sitting here very much aware of the problem in this country. I will always reflect on historical antecedents.

"I decided to drop the uniform and come back here (to be President of Nigeria), so I have gone through it over and over again. This is why I am not in a hurry to do anything. I will sit and reflect, and continue to (operate) with my clear conscience."
