Amina Mohammed, deputy secretary-general of the United Nations, has said a woman will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
She said this on Saturday at the Mo Ibrahim governance weekend in Abidjan, stating that she will be a campaign manager for the said woman.
In conversation with Mo Ibrahim, Amina Mohammed was asked when Nigeria will have a female president, she replied saying: “2023, Insha Allah”.
The former minister of environment was further asked if she would be running.
“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.”
