President Muhammadu Buhari has said he will not run for third as insinuated by some reports on the internet.
The president disclosed this on Friday at the national executive committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja.
Buhari said, “I’m not going to make the mistake of attempting a third term.
“Beside the age, I swore by the holy book that I would go by the constitution and the constitution said two terms. I know that I’m in my last term and I can afford to be reckless because I’m not going to ask for anybody’s vote.”
He also urged members of the APC ahead of his second tenure ending that history would not be fair if the party collapses.
The president said, “Every member of NEC from today should reposition himself or herself to make sure that you have dominated your constituencies politically. The aim is that history will not be fair to us if outrightly if the APC collapses at the end of this term.
“History will be fair to us if APC remains strong and not only hold the centre but make gains.”
