President Muhammadu Buhari has promised Nigerians that he will deliver free and fair elections during 2023 general election .
Buhari made this assertion in his last independence day speech as president on Saturday
He added that he is a product of free and fair elections that he would ensure the emergence of credible leaders.
“It is for this reason that I have resolved to bequeath a sustainable democratic culture which will remain lasting. The signing of the Electoral Act 2021 as amended with landmark provisions, further assures us of a more transparent and inclusive electoral process.”
He promised that the success recorded in the Anambra, Ekiti and Osun states governorship elections will be scaled up come 2023.
“You would all agree that the recent elections in the past two years in some states notably Anambra, Ekiti and Osun and a few federal constituencies have shown a high degree of credibility, transparency and freedom of choice with the people’s votes actually counting. This I promise would be improved upon as we move towards the 2023 general elections,” he said.
