0 13

President Muhammadu Buhari has spoken on speculations suggesting he has a 3rd term agenda, saying there are no chances will run for a third term while speaking with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

On the eve of the 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Kigali, Rwanda, the president and Johnson had a private conversation on Thursday.

The British prime minister reportedly asked Buhari if he would seek reelection, to which he replied, "Another term for me?," according to presidential spokeswoman Femi Adesina. No! It didn't go well for the first individual who tried it.

Nnamdi Kanu, the head of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), a group that has been declared illegal, was not permitted to visit his attorneys, according to the president.

He claimed that the law gives the separatist activist the chance to "justify all the unfavourable things he had been saying against Nigeria in Britain."

Buhari said that genuine attempts are being made to educate the populace about the Boko Haram insurgency and the reality that only an "unserious person" could slaughter innocent people and attribute it to God.

The people now recognize Boko Haram as anti-God and not about religion, he added, proving that the teaching campaign was successful.

Johnson said in his speech that he was pleased with the bilateral economic ties and said that the UK was further lowering tariffs on some items coming to Nigeria.
