Presidency blasts Falana over comment on third-term

Tue Dec 24th, 2019 - Ekiti

Presidency has said the Human Rights lawyer Femi Falana’s claim that President Muhammadu Buhari is planning a third term in office is a plot to seek free publicity and media attention.

“The popularly acclaimed human rights lawyer and formerly unsuccessful opposition candidate for governor of Ekiti state, Femi Falana, has boarded the free-publicity train, full of those seeking personal media attention in claiming the president is planning a third term in office,” Garba Shehu said in a statement on Monday.

“To repeat: All and every claim that is made that suggest President Muhammadu Buhari will stand for a third term in office is false.”
