President Muhammadu Buhari recently said that those planning to rig the 2023 election should think twice before making the decision. He made the statement on Thursday during an iftar organized for members of the diplomatic corps.
According to reports, Muhammadu Buhari said, “Those planning to rig the upcoming elections should think again, because I vow to resolutely preserve and defend the Nigerian people’s holy will, which will be voiced through the ballot box.”
He further said that “this administration’s term ends on May 29, 2023, as you are well aware.” The tempo of political activities is generally high during election years around the world. That is how democracy works. I am dedicated to leaving Nigeria with a better culture of credible elections than I encountered.
Lastly, “As Nigeria continues on this path, I urge our international friends, represented by you, the Diplomatic Corps, to play a positive role in reinforcing the concept of regard for our internal matters and facts, free of preconceived notions and bias.”
