An APC Candidate representing Toro federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Honourable Lawal Yahaya-Gumau, has announced that if elected into the Senate, the Nigerian constitution will be amended to make Muhammadu Buhari President for life.
The APC Candidate who alluded to the fact that former president, Olusegun Obasanjo was unable to amend the Constitution for a third term because he lacked sincerity, stated that making Buhari a President for life is the only mandate he will be going to the senate with.
Speaking at the closing of his campaign in Bauchi on Thursday, he said;
“I, Lawal-Yahaya Gumau, want you to know that the mandate that will be given to me on Saturday is to go and protect Buhari’s interest in the Senate. This is the only mandate that I will be going to the Senate with, having fulfilled every other mandate to the best of my ability while in the House of Representatives for eight years.
By God’s grace, we will amend Nigeria’s Constitution to allow Buhari to be President for the remaining years of his life. He will only cease to be President when God takes his life.
“Obasanjo tried all his best for the constitution to be amended to allow him go for a third term, but God didn’t approve of it because of its lack of sincerity. What is now needed in Nigeria is to protect Buhari’s interest and that is what we will do.”
Also speaking at the campaign, the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum and Governor of Zamfara State, Abdul’aziz Yari who disclosed that they were in the state on the mandate of the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, noted that it would be shameful for a candidate endorsed by Buhari to lose the election.
“Our message is simple; the acting President is seriously worried about what is going on in Bauchi State and he told us to tell you that with all the love being shown to Bauchi State by the President, it will be a shameful and disgraceful thing for us in the north for President Buhari to raise the hand of someone and the person loses that election” he said.
