President Muhammadu Buhari is not interested in seeking a third term in office, these are the words of Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity.
In a statement on Tuesday, Shehu warned “so-called support groups, staging street demonstrations asking President Buhari to do a third term”, to desist.
Describing his principal as a democrat, Shehu stressed that Buhari is only interested in rounding off his second term after which someone else would take over.
Shehu said Quote, “There are no circumstances – nor set of circumstances – under which President Buhari may seek to amend the Constitution regarding the two-term term limit on holding office as President., End of quote.
According to Nigeria’s constitution, an individual can only serve two terms, each made up of four years as President.
