Meeting

The  chairperson of the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO), Niyi Akinsiju, has refuted claims that President Muhammadu Buhari has a third term ambition.

Explaining that the claims were false, Akinsiju described Buhari as a democrat whose decision not to run for a third term is final and irreversible.

He thus advised Nigerians to ignore those pushing for term elongation as such a call violates the Nigerian constitution.

According to Akinsiju, Buhari made a bold declaration not to seek for a third term and that the president will not go back on his promise.

“As a man of integrity, he will not renege on his promise and neither will he bastardise the Nigerian constitution for personal gains, no matter the pressure, Akinsiju said. “We are confident that with the measures already put in place by Buhari, Nigeria is already well-positioned for development which will lead to job creation, economic growth and rapid socio-political development of the country,” Akinsiji said in a statement.

The BMO boss also explained that the president had no plans to violate the oath of office he swore to by seeking a term elongation as he is focused on delivering on the on good governance. ”We want to reassure Nigerians that Buhari remains focused in improving the lives of Nigerians by embarking on programmes and projects that will positively impact on Nigerians,” Akinsiju said.

Recall that a  member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi state, Charles Oko Enya,  reportedly appealed to the Federal High Court in Abakaliki to ask the National Assembly and the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami to remove the constitutional clauses stopping President Muhammadu Buhari from getting a third term. Enya reportedly made this appeal in a suit numbered FHC/AI/CS/90/19 and filed at the court on Wednesday, November 23, and made available to newspapers by his lawyer, Iheanacho Agboti.

In the suit, the APC member is asking for the removal of section 137(1) (b) and 182 (1) (b) in the 1999 constitution from the country’s law.
