President Buhari has officially confirmed that he will leave
office in 2023 and won’t contest in any future elections.
Buhari said he is a strong believer of democratic principles
and will promote and sustain them in Nigeria and across
West Africa. He stated this in his New Year letter to
Nigerians, which was released by the Presidency today.
“I will be standing down in 2023 and will not be
available in any future elections. But I am
determined to help strengthen the electoral process
both in Nigeria and across the region, where
several ECOWAS members go to the polls this
year,” he said.
The emphasis on leaving office in 2023 is to clarify the
speculation that there are underground moves to secure a
third term for him after the completion of his current last
term in 2023.
President Buhari also itemised what his regime had done
since 2015 and would do in the years ahead to improve
power supply, build roads/houses for Nigerians, develop
agriculture, diversify the economy, create jobs, combat
terrorism and promote democracy.
