President Muhammadu Buhari has maintained he would step down on May 29th, 2023, after serving two terms, following 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, stressing that without security, Nigeria would not likely realize its true potential as a peaceful and prosperous nation.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu said that the President, having taken over from an incumbent government in 2015, is committed to extending and entrenching democratic values across the country and shall in turn, hand the privilege of serving the people of Nigeria to whomever they choose through free, fair and credible elections.
Shehu reiterated that they would finish the job, adding that respect for the constitution and Nigerians’ democratic rights remains the best path to securing and maintaining peace.
