Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has re-emphasized that he would hand over power to the next president smoothly in 2023.
In far away Turkey, Buhari said he was looking forward to 2023 when he would finish his second tenure.
“I look forward to the year 2023 when I finish, to go home to take charge of my farm.
“Between now and that time, I will do the best that is possible to advance the interest of the nation and its people, and carry out my duties as prescribed by the Constitution,” he said.
The president had earlier cut a birthday cake moulded in national colours, green-white-green to start the day, went straight to chair a planning meeting with officials in his delegation and thereafter drove to the Dolmabahce Palace for a meeting with his Turkish counterpart, Tayyip Recep Erdogan.
