Leaders Who Swear By Holy Book Must Not Abuse Public Office – Buhari 

President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said leaders who take the oath of office by swearing with the holy book must not abuse their office.

He stated this during a visit to the Emir of Lafia, retired Justice Sidi Bage Muhammad 1, reaffirming that he has no intention whatsoever to stay beyond the constitutionally recognised two terms of office as Nigeria’s President.

“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,” the President was quoted as saying via a statement issued by his spokesman, Femi Adesina.

“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 abuse 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.”
