Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday said he does not care about who succeeds him in 2023.
According to the president, who spoke during an exclusive television interview, 2023 is not his problem.
President Buhari, who was asked to say something about the 2023 elections, said: “2023 is not my problem, I don’t care who succeeds me, let the person come, whoever the person is.
“All important things I make sure I put them on record. Nobody should ask me to come and give any evidence in court, otherwise, whoever it is will be in trouble.
“I don’t have a favourite for 2023 in my party, I wouldn’t because he will be eliminated before I mention, it is better I keep it a secret.”
On what legacy he would like to leave behind, the President said: “My legacy is that I will try to make sure we conducted ourselves with integrity, which means we stop all the stealing as much as the system can allow. We’ll stop misappropriation. And for Nigerians, that is very important.”
However, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and national leader of the ruling All Progressives Party (APC) are being fronted as presidential candidates but none of them is yet to officially declare their intentions.
