He noted that Nigeria had a tumultuous political history in terms of electioneering challenges and expressed optimism that past experiences would guide the conduct of the 2023 elections.

He expressed the hope that the outcome of the 2023 elections would be satisfactory to all stakeholders if all the actors complied with the rules of the game.
