A former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has promised not to extend his stay more one term in office if elected as president come 2019.
Atiku while speaking in an interview with THISDAY Newspaper Weekend edition, expressed his readiness to sign an undertaking to the effect.
He insisted that he would keep his promise to spend only a tenure in office, Atiku said: “My own case will be different.
In his words: “I have said this before on my own initiative. I believe in it. If I am elected as the President in 2019, I give an undertaking that I would only do one term. Having said that, let me remind Nigerians that Buhari also gave such an undertaking in 2011, but he is not living up to it today. My own case will be different. I am prepared to sign an undertaking to do only one term.
“I am not Muhammadu Buhari. I do not make promises I cannot keep. I am assuring Nigerians that I will keep this promise. I am making it out here in the open. I am willing to sign a written document. If you or any other Nigerian can come up with an iron-clad legal document that binds me, I am willing to publicly commit to it.”
