Buhari Rejects Call For Tenure Extension, Vows To Step Down Next Year

President Muhammadu Buhari has said there is no going back on leaving office after completing his constitutionally guaranteed tenure, emphasising that the May 29, 2023, handover date is sacrosanct.

Speaking through Malam Garba Shehu, his media aide, Buhari said the current administration would honour the constitution and people’s right to decide.

His reaction follows the suggestions of Chief Robert Clarke, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), that the constitution should be suspended for a new one.

Clarke had said the President could extend his tenure by six months if insecurity could affect the 2023 general elections.

But the president said the suggestion on the need to suspend the constitution might create crisis and instability.
