The Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN), Amina Mohammed, has said that she would have loved to contest the 2023 Presidential election as a woman but that she cannot stand the cheating in the the electoral system.
Amina Mohammed, who is the former Nigerian Minister of Environment, said at the Mo Ibrahim governance lecture in Abidjan, predicted though that it is a woman that will succeed Buhari in “2023, In sha Allah.”
When 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!”
