2023: Falana Accuses Buhari Of Plotting 3rd Term Bid, Releases Proofs




Constitutional and human rights lawyer Femi Falana has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of secretly plotting a third term bid in 2023.

Naija News reports that some groups have been calling on Buhari to extend his tenure beyond 2023.

But the president had maintained that he would hand over at the end of his second tenure.

Speaking to newsmen over the weekend, Femi Falana revealed moves Buhari and his men are making to elongate his ternure.

He said such moves include; trying to stifle free speech, a crackdown on the media, including the new media, disobedience of court order.

Falana said: “But you heard his group demanding a third term for him and the president trying to distance himself in a very unconvincing manner.

“I have no doubt there is a third term agenda, because dictatorship of the kind we are witnessing now, in the past, was to one end; tenure elongation.

“He (President Buhari) is trying to cow Nigerians, but no one can successfully do that.

“All his recent actions are geared towards that; ruling from London, closing borders, arresting opposition and jailing journalists, are meant for him, to be the only voice in the country, it won’t be.”
