President Muhammadu Buhari has again pledged to leave a legacy of credible elections in the country.
He also said having more women and youths participate in the electoral process in the 2023 general elections is one of his heart desires.
Mr Buhari said this in his Independence Day nationwide broadcast on Saturday.
The Independence day broadcast is the president’s last because he is leaving office in May when he will complete his second term in office.
Mr Buhari said he has resolved to bequeath a sustainable democratic culture to the country, noting that it was the reason for signing the 2022 Electoral Act.
He stated that his experience at the poll explains his determination to improve the process.
Mr Buhari contested the 2003, 2007 and 2011 presidential elections but lost but lost to former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo, Umaru Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan.
He, however, won the 2015 and 2019 presidential elections.
