President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated his intention to oversee a free and fair election in Nigeria, come 2023.
The president said this in a series of tweet on his official Twitter handle this morning, Friday, December 23.
In his words, “As I have said repeatedly, leaving behind a legacy of free & fair elections is a priority for our administration.”
According to Buhari, elections in Nigeria have improved overtime, especially since 2015, and he intends to make sure that 2023 builds on that improvement.
Part of his tweet reads, “Since 2015, the conduct of our elections continues to steadily improve. The 2019 general elections, the off-season elections in Edo, Ekiti, Anambra & Osun; all conducted in largely improved contexts, to the satisfaction of contestants and voters. This is what we hope for in 2023.
“As I have said repeatedly, leaving behind a legacy of free & fair elections is a priority for our administration. Beyond our borders, we will also continue to work to improve the quality of governance, especially in West Africa, where democracy’s survival is currently challenged.”
