2023: I’m keeping my preferred successor’s name a secret because he might be eliminated – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari says he is keeping the name of the person who he would prefer to succeed him in 2023 a secret because he might be eliminated.

Speaking in an interview on Channels Television on Wednesday January 5, the President said;

“I wouldn’t say because he may be eliminated if I mention. I better keep it. It is secret.”

On what comes to his mind when he hears about the 2023 elections, Buhari said the next general election is not his problem.

Stating that nobody should invite him to come and present evidence in court after his tenure, the President added that he is making sure that all important things carried out by his administration are on record.

He said;

“No. Let him come, whoever it is. All important things I’ll make sure that they are on record. Nobody should ask me to come and give any evidence in any court, otherwise whoever it is, he will be in trouble because all important things are on record.”


The President further averred that expectations of Nigerians are so high that failure in resource control could lead to revolt.

Buhari said;

“I think my legacy is that I try to make sure that we conduct ourselves with integrity. That means we stop all the stealing as much as the system can allow. We stopped misappropriation and for Nigerians that is very important.”
