APC part looks for revision of constitution to permit President Buhari challenge third term
Charles Enya, an individual from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi state who filled in as the sorting out secretary for President Buhari’s battle association during the 2019 general political race has recorded a suit (FHC/AI/CS/90/19) under the watchful eye of a government high court in Abakiliki looking for the correction of the constitution to permit President Muhammadu Buhari get another term in office.
The APC member described the two-term tenure limit for presidents and governors as “discriminatory” in relation to the executive and legislative branches of government in Nigeria, in the suit which has Mohammed Sani-Omolori, clerk of the national assembly; the national assembly and Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation and minister of justice as defendants.
He asked the court to prevail on the defendants to remove constitutional clauses hindering elected presidents and governors from seeking a third term in office.
Daily Trust reported that he is seeking an “order of the court nullifying and setting aside section 137(1)(b) and 182(1) (b) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) and directing the first and second defendants to delete and expunge sections 137(1)(b) and 182(1)(b) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, (as amended).”
This is coming after President Buhari debunked reports of seeking a third term in office.
