Presidential spokesman Femi Adesina has described as a misquote the report that President Buhari had pledged only one term presidency and will never seek re-election in view of his age status.
Adesina reacting to a contributor on Channel Television programme via Skype on Tuesday, said, “No, that’s a misquote, he was never, never quoted that way.
“If there is anything on the record like that is a misquote because I was with him in South Africa when that issue came when he said, oh, he wished he had become president at the time he was a military governor that he would have done a lot for Nigeria.
“And the other happened in 2011. When he was running in 2011 he said, yes he would be a president for one term. But did he win in that year? no.
“The victory came in 2015. So, that being quoted in 2011 is not applicable again because he did not win that year.’’
