President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he would not be needing the votes of anybody in another election because he has no plan to run for a third term in office.
There have been speculations that Buhari may likely seek a third term in office at the end of his second term in 2023.
Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN) gave credence to the speculation about two weeks ago when he accused Buhari of planning a third term agenda.
Speaking on Friday at a meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, Buhari said he has no intention to prolong his stay in office.
“I said you should read the Constitution because I am not going to make a mistake. Besides the age, I am not going to contest for third term because I will go by the Constitution. The Constitution says two-terms.
“I’m going to be frank here because I won’t be needing anybody’s vote,” President Buhari said in his address to the meeting.
