At UNGA77, Buhari Vows to Bequeath Legacy of Credible Poll
POLITICS DIGEST- President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday restated his resolve to leave behind a legacy of credible elections after serving out his two terms of eight years in May next year.
He dropped the hint in his farewell speech at the 77th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA77) in New York, United States (U.S.).
“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,” Buhari told the Assembly.
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.”
