President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians on improved livelihood in the new year. He stated this in his New Year letter to Nigerians, which was released by the Presidency at 6am on Wednesday 1st January, 2020.

Buhari said he is a strong believer of democratic principles and will promote and sustain them in Nigeria and across West Africa.

The letter is on emphasis about leaving office in 2023. It is apparently to clarify the speculation as he cleared the minds of so many by giving a verdict on his moves after successful tenure in 2023 “I will be standing down in 2023 and will not be available in any future elections. But I am determined to help strengthen the electoral process both in Nigeria and across the region, where several ECOWAS members go to the polls this year,” he said.

The new year letter Titled ‘A Letter from the President at New Year’, and personally signed by him, Buhari stated that fighting corruption, improving the economy and combating insecurity would remain the planks of his regime in the new year.

He also itemised what his regime had done since 2015 and would do in the years ahead to improve power supply, build roads/houses for Nigerians, develop agriculture, diversify the economy, create jobs, combat terrorism and promote democracy.
