If elected president, I’ll serve one term, I’m not Muhammadu Buhari… – Atiku

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar says if elected president, he will sign an undertaking to serve for just a term.

Abubakar said this in an interview with THISDAY.

The former vice-president said his case would not be like President Muhammadu Buhari who allegedly reneged on his promise to serve for one term.

“If I am elected as the president in 2019, I give an undertaking that I would only do one term,” he said.

“Having said that, let me remind Nigerians that Buhari also gave such an undertaking in 2011, but he is not living up to it today. My own case will be different. I am prepared to sign an undertaking to do only one term.

“I am not Muhammadu Buhari. I do not make promises I cannot keep. I am assuring Nigerians that I will keep this promise. I am making it out here in the open.

“I am willing to sign a written document. If you or any other Nigerian can come up with an iron-clad legal document that binds me, I am willing to publicly commit to it.”

Abubakar said hypocrisy has always been the stock in trade of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“Hypocrisy has always been the APC’s stock in trade. They claimed that the PDP mismanaged Nigeria for 16 years, yet in just three years of APC being in power, Nigeria experienced a recession, which we never experienced under the PDP,” he said.
