President Muhammadu Buhari has again denied the prospect of going for third term when his tenure runs down by May 2023.
There had been rumors in some quarters linking the former Head of State with third ambition.
This time in Kigali, Rwanda at the 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), he told the British Prime Minister that he won’t be continuing in office beyond 2023.
Boris Johnson had asked if he would want to run again, to which Buhari said, “Another term for me? No! The first person who tried it didn’t end very well,” to which they all laughed.
African leaders are known for their penchant for holding on to power, even going as far as changing the Constitutions of their nations to do so.
