I Can’t Dare Nigerians With A Third Term, Buhari Tells UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson

Buhari, Boris Johnson

President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated his resolve to respect the maximum two-term limit in the Nigerian Constitution for the position of president, saying such a proposition is not within the realms of consideration.

According to him, the first person to attempt tenure elongation (third term) failed spectacularly.

The president made this comment yesterday during a bilateral meeting with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson at the sidelines of the 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Kigali, Rwanda.

Prime Minister Johnson, obviously not familiar with the maximum two-term limit, had asked if President Buhari would run for office again, to which the latter responded: “Another term for me? No! The first person who tried it didn’t end very well.”
