- … the success of his administration will depend on the survival of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), after 2023.
President Muhammadu Buhari has said he hopes Nigeria will be secure, prosperous and confident by the time he leaves office in 2023.
He made the remark in a 30-minute interview with the Nigerian Television Authority, which aired on Friday.
According to the President, he is committed to stepping down in 2023 and has no third term agenda, as the constitution allows for only two terms.
He added that the success of his administration will depend on the survival of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), after 2023.
On Security, the President argued that his administration is committed to securing the country from all forms of violence, including banditry and terrorism.
He said it was unfair to conclude that the police and military action currently ongoing in the South-East was a result of his dislike of the region.
