President Muhammadu Buhari has said that Nigeria must improve and sustain gains made in the electoral process, on an incremental basis for her to take its rightful place among Nations.
He stated this in a farewell broadcast to the Nation on Sunday May 28.
The president who said 2023 witnessed the most keenly contested Presidential Elections since the first Republic pointed out that it demonstrates that the nation’s democracy was getting better with each election.
To ensure that our democracy remains resilient and our elected representatives remain accountable to the people, I am leaving behind an electoral process which guarantees that votes count, results are credible, elections are fair and transparent and the influence of money in politics reduced to the barest minimum. And Nigerians can elect leaders of their choice.
”We are already seeing the outcome of this process as it provided an even playing field where persons without any political God-Father or access to money defeated other well-resourced candidates”, he said.
The President urged all parties involved to accept the decision of the courts irrespective of the outcome of the various cases and join hands to build a better Nigeria.
You are the best candidate among all
President Buhari while congratulating the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu said the realisation of his dream was propelled by a burning passion to put Nigeria amongst the leading nations of the world.
‘’You have indeed worked for this day and God has crowned your efforts. I have no doubt that your passion for excellence, reliance on competence, fairness in relationships, commitment to equity, loyalty to the country and desire for Nigeria to be globally relevant would come through for you, under God’s guidance, as you lead our country to levels higher that I am leaving.
He said Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was the best candidate among all the contestants and that Nigerians have chosen well.
