Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari says he looks forward to exiting his office after his tenure expires in 2023.
Buhari stated he can’t wait to become a former president and he made this statement on Thursday, February 24, during a courtesy visit to the palace of Sidi Bage Muhammad I, Emir of Lafia, in Nasarawa state.
According to a statement by his spokesperson, Femi Adesina, the president said, “The traditional ruler is on a terminal appointment. Constitutionally, we (elected public office holders) are not. I cannot go beyond two terms and I have sworn by the Holy Quran that I will uphold the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Politics apart, whenever we are made to swear by the Holy Quran, we have to be very careful. We must make sure that we do not ab#se the trust God has given us as leaders.
I have seen former governors here and I am looking forward to also becoming a former president.”
