Buhari Not Seeking Third-Term Of Office – Presidency

Unic Press UK: President Muhammadu Buhari would not seek a third-term of office.

In a statement Tuesday, the Senior Special Assistant to the President for Media & Publicity, Garba Shehu debunked a rumor that his principal and head of the Nigerian government, Muhammadu Buhari, had a furtive plot to seek a third-term.

“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. President Buhari intends to serve his full second elected term in office, ending 2023 – and then there shall be a general election in which he will not be a candidate,” the statement reads.

Denouncing the commentaries alluding to a third-term plot, the president’s senior special assistant added that a previous attempt by a former president to amend the Constitution to allow a third term had failed as it was “wrong, unconstitutional – and rightly rebuffed.”
