During a valedictory session with Nigerian ministers who have officially resigned from their office, President Buhari noted that it would be a legacy to the country if one of them succeeded him.

President Buhari's remark was based on the belief that any of the outgoing ministers who inherit his seat in 2023 will serve Nigeria with the same competence they have shown while in his cabinet.

The president, in a Facebook post released by Buhari Sallau, a presidential media aide, was quoted to have said:

''I have no doubt that if the next President emerges from among former members of this cabinet, like any other aspirant, ample competence and outstanding service delivery would be on display. This will be part of our legacies to Nigerians.''
