“I Swear By The Holy Qur’an”— Buhari Speaks On Third Term Agenda

President Muhammadu Buhari has spoken about a third term agenda and his plans to try not to circumvent the Nigerian Constitution. The President swore with the holy Qur’an to relinquish power in 2023 while lamenting on the things he tried to do but failed.

 Buhari made the vow on Thursday, while inaugurating the Muhammadu Indimi Centre for Distance Learning and an International Conference at the University of Maiduguri.

 “I swear by the holy Qur’an that I will uphold the constitution of the country, and by that, I must relinquish power in 17 months’ time. Mr Buhari, a former military despot, pledged. 

 “I will go, God’s willing. I hope whoever is coming after me will try to do the three things I tried to do. 

 “One, to secure the country. If I leave the country unsecured, it cannot be managed. “Secondly, the economy. We have a lot of people who are unemployed,” he said. 

 Speaking on his regime’s efforts to tackle the hordes of bandits, Boko Haram, ISWAP and Niger Delta militants, Buhari revealed that he had militarily and politically engaged the recalcitrant elements separately. 

 He said he would devote his remaining time in office to tackle the worsening deterioration of insecurity and grinding poverty in Africa’s most populous nation.

 “I have ordered and started receiving military hardware from the United States, military aircraft, helicopters and armoured vehicles, and we are going to be very, very hard on them (bandits).

“It is the same people stealing other people’s property and killing here and there. What for?” he said. 

 According to Buhari, the Niger Delta militants’ disruptive action on pipelines causes self-inflicted pain. 

“In the South-South, somehow they (militants) believed had a case, and we told their leadership the truth when they came to visit me. When they sabotaged the oil pipelines or the wells, the land get polluted, the fish move further into the ocean, and the ordinary people cannot farm, and most of their people are farmers and fishermen.

 “They can neither fish nor farm. So who are they hurting, other Nigerians or their own people? 

 “It is just common sense, and maybe they listened to that, and they have left the pipelines alone,” he further said.

About the bandits in the North, Buhari said they will be dealt with.

 “But the problem now is the North-West as I said, same people, same culture. We are going to deal with them.”
