2023: President Buhari speaks on his 8 year office tenure, reveals what he’ll be doing

President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated his decision to contest for further elections in the country after his tenure expires in 2023.

Buhari, in his New Year message to Nigerians on Wednesday, said he will stand down by 2023.

There are ongoing rumours that President Buhari, who completes his second tenure by 2023, making it 8 years in office as a democratically elected President, may choose to continue in office.

However, Buhari said he has no such plan, but added that he is 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, “Election the cornerstone of our democracy. I salute the commitment of the millions who voted in peace last February and of those leaders who contested for office vigorously but fairly, submitting to the authority of the electorate, the Independent National Electoral Commission and judicial process.

“I understand very well the frustrations our system has in the past triggered. 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.”
