I will bequeath legacy of credible poll, says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has restated his resolve to leave behind a legacy of credible elections at the end of his two terms of eight years in May next year.

He gave the reminder in his farewell speech at the 77th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA77) in New York, United States (U.S.).

Buhari said, “As President, I have set the goal that one of the enduring legacies I would leave is to entrench a process of free, fair, transparent, and credible elections. It is through that mechanism that Nigerians will elect leaders of their choice.”

According to him, his successor would be addressing the next session of the Assembly in 2024 as Nigeria’s new leader.

The president said: “We are now preparing for general elections in Nigeria next February. At the 78th UN General Assembly, there will be a new face at this podium speaking for Nigeria.

“Ours is a vast country strengthened by its diversity and its common values of hard work, enduring faith, and a sense of community.

“We have invested heavily to strengthen our framework for free and fair elections.”

He reiterated his commitment to constitutional term limits and Nigeria’s effort at promoting the rule of law and democracy in the West African sub-region.
