UN deputy secretary-general, Amina Mohammed has stated that in 2023, it is a woman that will replace President Muhammadu Buhari. She made this known while speaking at the Mo Ibrahim governance weekend in Abidjan. When asked when Nigeria will have a female president, Amina Mohammed said in 2023.
Asked if she would be running, she said:
“Look, all of my life has been as a public servant and as one that serves, so that is not a problem for me.
“But let me be truthful here, I have always thought that I am appointable and not electable. I think the political system that we have in our country, I believe in democracy, but I think the model for us, where we are is an incredibly difficult environment to say you would come to office through the will of the people.
“I think the manipulation of democracy is a very serious issue in our countries. We have a population, as I said, has a level of literacy that can be manipulated, that is not right.”
