Buhari reveals what he’ll do after 2023 elections

President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians and international leaders that he will peacefully transfer power to an elected democratic government come 2023.

The president who gave the assurance at a Virtual Summit for Democracy organised by President Joe Biden of the United States, according to the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said; “As we countdown to our next general elections in 2023, we remain committed to putting in place and strengthening all necessary mechanisms to ensure that Nigeria will not only record another peaceful transfer of power to an elected democratic government but will also ensure that the elections are conducted in a free, fair and transparent manner.

“Your Excellencies, Nigeria will continue to actively support the democratization processes in our region West Africa and the African continent at large. But regrettably, our democratic gains of the past decades are under threats of unconstitutional takeover of power.

“This unwholesome trend, sometimes in reaction to unilateral amendments of constitutions by some leaders, must not be tolerated by the international community. Nigeria fully supports the efforts by ECOWAS to address this growing challenge and appreciates the support of both the African Union and the United Nations,’’ Buhari said.
