President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday took a swipe at some of his political opponents who he said sought for more terms in office contrary to the provisions of the 1999 Constitution.
It would be recalled that former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, after spending two terms, 1999-2007, seek to upturn the constitution to allow third term
The President stated this on Tuesday while addressing traditional rulers in Akure, under the umbrella of the Ondo State Council of Obas.
While appealing to the monarchs to consider him ahead of other candidates, stressed that he was only seeking to be President for another four years and after then, he would quit the stage.
Buhari in a message posted by his aide on digital communication, Tolu Ogunlesi, said: “We have just finished one term and are seeking a second one, and after that, the Constitution doesn’t permit anymore.
“There are some who tried looking for more but they did not succeed,” Ogunlesi added.
