President Muhammadu Buhari has said that his preferred candidate for the 2023 Presidential election would be the same person Nigerians would prefer.
According to Buhari, he has no particular candidate for the 2023 Presidential election.
He clarified that he can only hand over power to whoever Nigerians elect as his successor in 2023.
Fielding questions from journalists after observing the Eid-el-Fitr prayers in Abuja, Buhari said the one who would succeed him is “the person that Nigerians would elect”.
Recall that the president had earlier said that he was not going to reveal his preferred candidate because the person may be exposed to risk of being killed.
His position has led to speculations on his candidate for 2023 election. Till date, it is difficult to ascertain the president’s preferred candidate.
