The President, who made the call when a paid a courtesy visit to the Emir of Lafia, Sidi Bage Muhammad 1, in his palace, insisted that he has no intention to stay beyond the two terms in office.

He said: “The traditional ruler is on a terminal appointment. Constitutionally, we (elected public office holders) are not. I cannot go beyond the two terms and I have sworn by the Holy Quran that I will uphold the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Politics apart, whenever we are made to swear by the Holy Qur’an. We have to be very careful. We must make sure that we do not abuse the trust God has given us as leaders.
