APC member seeks amendment of constitution to allow President Buhari contest third term

According to reports gathered, Charles Enya, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi state has filed a suit (FHC/AI/CS/90/19) before a federal high court in Abakiliki seeking the amendment of the constitution to allow President Muhammadu Buhari get another term in office.

 It was learnt that he served as the organising secretary for President Buhari's campaign organization during the 2019 general election.

He stated that the two-term tenure limit for presidents and governors as “discriminatory”  in relation to the executive and legislative branches of government in Nigeria.

This was revealed in the suit which has Mohammed Sani-Omolori, clerk of the national assembly; the national assembly and Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation and minister of justice as defendants. 

 

According to reports, he urged the court to prevail on the defendants to remove constitutional clauses hindering elected presidents and governors from seeking a third term in office. 

 

It was further reported by Daily Trust that he is seeking an “order of the court nullifying and setting aside section 137(1)(b) and 182(1) (b) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) and directing the first and second defendants to delete and expunge sections 137(1)(b) and 182(1)(b) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, (as amended).”

 

Recall that days ago, President Buhari debunked reports of seeking a third term in office at the APC general meeting.
