President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday received some of the Ministers who served with him as military head of state between Jan. 1984 and Aug. 1985.

The President, who met with the former ministers at the presidential villa, Abuja, recalled “how we got things done then,” because it was a military administration.

Buhari pledged to “carry everyone along on my last lap as a democratically elected leader.”

He thanked the former Ministers “for being consistently in touch” and particularly lauded the military for building Abuja as new Federal capital for the country.

Leader of delegation, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, who served as Minister of External Affairs, said the team came to congratulate the President on his achievements in security, foreign affairs, anti-corruption, education, and many others.

He said: “We were appointed 35 years and nine months ago. Eighteen of us were sworn in.

“Your leadership was firm, but you also gave us free hand to operate. You knew what each person was doing. We will never forget the opportunity you gave us. We remain patriots,’’ Gambari said.

He commended the President on the newly constituted Economic Advisory Council, adding that the same should be considered for security and foreign affairs.
