Single tenure: Presidency dares Senate

The Presidency on Friday said the clause in the proposed constitution amendment, which seeks to exclude President Goodluck Jonathan and some governors from participating in the 2015 elections, would fail.

Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Dr. Ahmed Gulak, said this in an exclusive interview with one of our correspondents in Abuja.

Gulak said it would be unfair for the National Assembly to make an amendment that would short-change those elected under a constitution that allows them to contest two terms of four years each.

He said, “It is not a fair amendment to target a particular group of people. That proposal will not scale through because Nigerians are wiser.
