BUHARI CAN CONTINUE HIS TENURE.

Why Buhari should extend his tenure — Chief Robert Clarke.

Elder statesman, Chief Robert Clarke, has called for the extension of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure.
.
.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), on Monday, argued that the months preceding the 2023 elections are insufficient to reduce insecurity and allow for the conduct of elections.

Clarke stated on ARISE Television that the Constitution allows the President to extend his term for six months in the first instance if he believes that the conditions are not conducive to holding elections.
.
.
He claimed that it was incorrect to suppose that the President could not serve two terms of eight years each. Clarke stated that the President can continue to grant himself six-month extensions to hold elections.

“The President can serve for more than eight years, according to the Constitution. It’s something I’ve always said. It’s written into the law.
