“can afford to be reckless because” he would not be needing the votes of Nigerians again in another election, Say’s President Muhammadu Buhari
Buhari made the declaration on Friday during the National Executive Committee meeting of the All Progressives Congress in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
He stated that he did not seek a third term because he was not supported by the Nigerian Constitution, apart from his age no longer on his side. He said he would not.
Buhari said, “I am not going to make mistake of attempting a third term or whatever term.
“Besides age, I swore by the holy book that I believe in and will go by the constitution.
“I know I am in my last term and I can afford to be reckless because I am not going to ask for anybody’s vote.”
Some lawmakers have indicated in recent days that Buhari was planning for a third term in office.
Although those around him still declined to do so, the Friday declaration by Buhari could have paid off this kind of discussion.
