Our democracy has improved under my administration-Mohammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari Monday in Abuja said Nigeria’s
democracy is steadily improving with deeper understanding of the
culture and tenets among the people, and strengthening of the
institutions that guarantee free and fair elections.

Receiving Governor General of Canada, Her Excellency Rt. Hon.
Julie Payette, at the Presidential Villa, President Buhari said he saw the evolving strength of democracy in the country by contesting for elections three times before winning at the fourth trial in 2015.
President Buhari told the Governor General that Nigeria had been
learning from the mistakes of those who practiced democracy for
a longer period, and by looking inward at its own peculiarities.

I emphasize free and fair elections at all times,’’ he said.
The President said the bilateral relations with Canada will continue
to be improved considering the huge interest of the country in
Nigeria and growing economic ties, with many Nigerians schooling
and working in the country.

Can the south east (Igbo speaking tribe) produce the next Nigerian President come 2023?

President Buhari said Canada played a brotherly role in helping
displaced persons in the North East, following Boko Haram
insurgency. In her remarks, the Governor General said Nigeria and Canada enjoy a warm and strong partnership that has translated into easeof migration, large trade relations and cultural exchanges.

Rt. Hon. Payette, who is an astronaut, said it was important for
nations to pool resources together to start exploring the benefits of
space in providing solutions to some problems on earth.
The Governor General noted that the world would achieve more by
de-emphasizing geographical differences and refocusing its energy
on the commonality of humanity, pointing out that from space one
can only see an earth without borders.

Rt. Hon. Payette said her visit was about showcasing “youth,
innovation and technology’’, adding that Canada would like to
partner with Nigeria in the ongoing diversification of the economy.
“We wish you free and credible elections in 2019,’’ she said.
