President Muhammadu Buhari has reassured citizens that his administration was committed to deliver a free, fair and credible elections in 2023.

The Nigerian leader gave the pledge when he visited the Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero, in Kano, noting that a level-playing ground would be provided for the conduct of credible elections in the country.

Buhari said his administration is committed to sustaining and consolidating on the giant strides achieved under his leadership over the years, adding that no democratic system could be feasible without making efforts in touching every sphere of human endeavour.

The President also hinted that some international groups were behind Boko Haram activities in the country, stressing that when he came to power in 2015, Boko Haram was in total control in 13 of the 17 local government areas of Borno State as only four were in control of the government then.

On his part, the State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, said with the present democratic dispensation taking shape in the country, Kano was adjudged to be a leading pacesetter.

In his response, the Emir of Kano said it is imperative for politicians campaigning for elective office to understand the challenges faced by the electorates. He also stressed the need for a peaceful conduct of the elections, adding that employing crude tactics in winning elections would be inimical to the peace and stability of the country.
