Funny Enough: I Sometimes Miss My Way In Aso Villa – Buhari Says

President Muhammadu Buhari shocked his interviewer in Paris that he sometimes misses his way in Aso Presidential Villa, an expansive palace serving a dual purpose as office and residence for an incumbent Nigerian leader.

It was built in the late 80s and a former military president, Ibrahim Babangida first occupied it in 1991, after he moved the central government from Lagos to Abuja, months after an aborted coup.

President Buhari was also a former Nigerian leader that ruled from Dodan Barracks in Obalende Lagos, from January 1984 to August 1985, when he was toppled by Babangida.

He was Asked  whether Aso Rock was like the Government House he left in 1985.

Buhari answered: It was not the same place. The last time I was there, I was in the barracks. This time I am in a palace. At times, I can’t find my way around. It is so big so much that it must be expensive to maintain. But it is there, it cannot be removed.”

Asked whether he is now a different man, he answered:
“I don’t think basically, I am a different man. I came back to power under a different system.”

Buhari moved into the Villa on 21 June, more than three weeks after he was sworn-in. His predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, had approved some renovation work on the Villa, which stretched far beyond his tenure.President Muhammadu Buhari shocked his interviewer in Paris today that he sometimes misses his way in Aso Presidential Villa, an expansive palace serving a dual purpose as office and residence for an incumbent Nigerian leader.

  1. Lat’s call a spade, a spade. This statement to me is a minus for Buhari rather than a plus. Is Aso Rock as big as Daura? Does he miss his ways while going round Daura? It is a question of age or short memory. Have you heard about a President that was said to have read a wrong speech? You don’t know that it is a question of old age. Why do you think a 5 year old boy/girl will not miss his/her way within his/her School, it is because they have a sharp brain. Let’s stop defending PMB’s inadequacies. He should put a sign post in Aso Villa or buy a GPS.

  2. The place is more than a palace. Babangida built it so he can live there for a very long time but Nigerians chassed him away to Minna.

  3. ofcuz as a being…… we hav d right to be wrong sumtime…….datx a mansion u knw……..need to miss way is normal…….respect ur president ma friend

  4. Hey Folasere, You are a fool, Is Aso Villa a 2 bedroom apartment ? Buhari is saying the truth, he is right. Have you visited White House in Washington DC,USA or Queens Palace in London,UK before ?

  5. @Mandy S, why waste you time on an empty vessel called Folasere? They like liars who deceive people and steal money – that’s their way! Forget him!
