President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians of free and fair election and a peaceful transfer of power in 2023.
The President stated this at a virtual summit organized by President Joe Biden of the United States of America.
While speaking, the President said Nigeria has continued to face security challenges that posed a threat to democracy calling “our global partners to support our efforts in tackling insurgency and terrorism.”
He added, “I am proud to state that Nigeria has had over two decades of uninterrupted democratic governance and has unequivocally remained committed to upholding the core values and principles of democracy.
“Since assuming office in 2015, we have been able to introduce mechanisms to ensure free, fair and credible elections. We have strengthened our key anti-corruption agencies in collaboration with international partners and have undertaken several anti-corruption measures and initiatives. “
