President Muhammadu Buhari has urged his followers against campaigning for him for a third term.

The president’s second and last term as a democratic leader expires in 2023, but some detractors are concerned that he will try to extend his term.

Despite his repeated denials, several of his supporters, including elected legislators, have expressed support for his ongoing leadership.

However, during a meeting with Nigerians in Saudi Arabia on Friday, October 29, 2021, Buhari reiterated his position that he will depart in two years, as required by the constitution.

“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,” he said.

The president stated that he intends to use the remainder of his term in office to better the lives of Nigerians.

He expressed concern about the rising insecurity in the northwestern region and promised to address the situation.

The 78-year-old urged people and detractors to be objective about his government and the accomplishments he claims to have made since taking office in 2015.
