I joined army to escape early marriage — Pres. Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he was forced to join the army to escape pressure to get married after leaving secondary school.

The President disclosed this on Friday, January 27, in Daura, Katsina State.

According to a statement by presidential aide, Femi Adesina, the president said that he secured his first job early after school to manage a co-operative in Daura, but had to escape and join the army when there was pressure that he should get married.

“I told Governor Aminu Masari the story of how I left Daura to join the army. That was how God planned it. We make choices in life, but eventually destiny is before God.

I was at the w@r front during the civil w@r, and saw how many di£d. Some fell right beside me. God kept me.

Many bridges were blown just before we arrived at some places, and after we crossed. I arrived at some places to see bodies of my own colleagues that we were fi¥hting together. I am alive today only by God’s grace,” Buhari said.
