Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly warned his supporters against campaigning for him to remain in office beyond 2023.
According to a statement by the spokesperson for the president, Garba Shehu, reported by Instablog9ja, Buhari issued the warning on Friday during a meeting with some Nigerian residents in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
On Monday, Buhari departed Abuja for Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to participate in the investment conference organized by the Future Investment Initiative Institute.
Speaking at the meeting with the Nigerians in Saudi Arabia, Buhari said he will not accept any such clamor for an “unconstitutional extension” of his tenure.
The president also said for the rest of “eighteen months or so of my time left, whatever I can do to improve the life of Nigerians, I will do it for the country. I swore by the Holy Qur’an that I will serve in accordance with the constitution and leave when my time is up. No “Tazarce’’ (tenure extension). I don’t want anybody to start talking about and campaigning for unconstitutional extension. I will not accept that.”
