Written by awawa on May 11, 2022
President Muhammadu Buhari has responded to the call for him to extend his tenure by six months.
This was in response to the Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Robert Clarke’s recent remarks, where he demanded that Buhari should elongate his stay in office.
While the Presidency through Garba Shehu, spokesperson to the President, noted that Clarke, may be sincere in his wish, he maintained that Buhari “will step down on May 29th, 2023, after serving two terms – as per the constitution.”
The presidency said that Buhari, having taken over from an incumbent government in 2015, is committed to extending and entrenching democratic values across the country.
