President Muhammadu Buhari has assured the international community and Nigerians of his commitment to the conduct of free, fair and credible elections in 2019.
Buhari has stated this during a bilateral meeting with the visiting Prime Minister Theresa May at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said: “I assure you that I’m all out for free, fair and credible elections.
“I’m very pleased that my party is doing very well. The High Commissioner will brief you more. The recent successes in polls in Katsina, Bauchi, and Kogi have boosted our morale greatly.
“Nigeria has accepted multiparty democracy and that is putting politicians on their toes, forcing them to work harder.”
On Brexit, Buhari said: “We are nervously watching the development about Brexit because we know that the relationship had been on for a long time.
“I assure you that I am prepared to strengthen the relationship between our two countries.”
Buhari also thanked the British government for its support on security and the fight against insurgency in the North-East.
