President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday assured Nigerians and the global community of his administration’s resolve to strengthen all necessary mechanisms that will ensure another peaceful transfer of power.
The President, who spoke at a virtual summit for democracy organised by President Joe Biden of the United States, assured that the 2023 general elections will be free and fair.
According to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, President Buhari also told participants that Nigeria will continue to support democratisation processes in West Africa, as well as the whole of the African continent.
“As we countdown to our next general elections in 2023, we remain committed to putting in place and strengthening all necessary mechanisms to ensure that Nigeria will not only record another peaceful transfer of power to an elected democratic government but will also ensure that the elections are conducted in a free, fair and transparent manner.
“Your Excellencies, Nigeria will continue to actively support the democratisation processes in our region West Africa and the African continent at large.
“But regrettably, our democratic gains of the past decades are under threats of an unconstitutional takeover of power.
“This unwholesome trend, sometimes in reaction to unilateral amendments of constitutions by some leaders, must not be tolerated by the international community.
