President Muhammadu Buhari says he will not allow any politician to use the name of the office of the President or his resources to canvass for votes in 2023 elections in the country.

``What I want to promise Nigerians is that I will work very hard on ensuring free and fair elections.

 

``All those that are going to succeed the National Assembly and the Presidency, they better work very hard because I will make sure I use the law enforcement agents to ensure that elections are free and fair; nobody uses his office or his resources to force himself on his constituency,’’ he said.

 

The president, who said he had accepted the realities of leadership in Nigeria, pledged to continue to do his best in transforming the country.

 

``I think, I come to accept the realities of leadership in Nigeria. You can only try, it is a terrific country.
