Garba Shehu Says Buhari Will Never Seek A Thrid Term, Attacks Femi Falana by yns4real: 9:00pm On Dec 23, 2019
The popularly acclaimed human rights lawyer and formerly unsuccessful opposition candidate for governor of Ekiti state, Femi Falana, has boarded the free-publicity train, full of those seeking personal media attention in claiming the president is planning a third term in office.
To repeat: All and every claim that is made that suggest President Muhammadu Buhari will stand for a third term in office is false.

To reiterate, the President reminds all of those who wish it were otherwise, whether because they want a third term, or because they seek to make false claims for the purposes of their own publicity of the statement made on 2nd October 2019, which is repeated in full, below:

“The Presidency wishes to correct internet-based gossip and uninformed media commentary regarding presidential term limits, given credence by so-called support groups, staging street demonstrations asking President Muhammadu Buhari to do a third term.

“There are no circumstances – nor set of circumstances – under which President Buhari may seek to amend the Constitution regarding the two-term term limit on holding office as President.

“President Buhari intends to serve his full second elected term in office, ending 2023 – and then there shall be a general election in which he will not be a candidate.

“There is not even the faintest possibility that this will change.


“It is important to note that there was a past attempt to change the Constitution to allow for the then incumbent president to stand for a third term. That attempt was wrong, unconstitutional – and rightly rebuffed. No such attempt will happen under this President”.
President Buhari is a democrat. He respects the Constitution. Any activity aimed at altering the two-term limit will not succeed and shall never have his time nor support."

The President will have nothing more to say on this matter - apart from to repeat this statement, ad infinitum - that he will not be seeking, accepting, nor standing for a third term.

Buhari had the tendency and we can't tell for sure if he's yet to drop his intentions for a third term..... As Tinubu is silence overtime., I'm sure, he's waiting on Buhari to make up his mind....

So Falana can be regarded as "popularly acclaimed" by the Government ?

Imagine how the Government has reduced Falana to an assistant referee in a football march whose views are always ignored.

It is not fake news.
It is not even a news.
Falana and other Nigerians are merely preempting the move of the Major General.
It was a smart ambush of the third term agenda.

I like that he said the president is not going for a third term amd he will not support an amendment of the constitution to allow him be able to contest for a third term.

Unlike other people who said they won't do anything unconstitutional meaning if the constitution is changed to allow them, they will contest. This press statement says their is no possibility that President General Buhari will stay beyond May 29, 2023.

No vague clause, just putting it all out

When was he referred to as a US citizen. Is he a US citizen for real? What's wrong with him getting airtime on their major news networks? For how long has he been getting this airtime? Is it for free? So because he gets airtime on their news networks& he is referred to as a US citizen, that automatically makes him a "tool to cause dissension in Nigeria"?
