The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has warned the cabal in government to desist from pushing for a third term bid for President Buhari.
The PDP describes such move as dangerous and capable of destabilizing Nigeria’s democracy.
A statement by PDP spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan reads: “It is preposterous for the Presidency cabal and the APC to think that Nigerians cannot see through their shenanigan to import and elevate what they labeled as rumor and internet-based gossip, into official national discourse.
“Our party notes that Nigerians will not be surprised when, after the statements by the Presidency and APC, new groups surface to orchestrate more forceful agitations in the public space for the alteration of the 1999 Constitution to achieve an ignoble aim.
“We, however, caution the Presidency and the APC to note that Nigerians are already aware of individuals and political interests in the Presidency cabal in addition to known APC agents who are behind the street demonstrations for a third term for President Buhari.
“The party invites Nigerians to note how, having been busted, the presidency cabal and the APC are now groping for ways to cover their trails by making frivolous allegations which directly point back to them.”
The PDP further urged the president to call his supporters to order by speaking out against having any third term bid.
It insisted that “this has become imperative in view of the series of constitutional violations and provocative undermining of our laws by the APC and power mongers in the Buhari Presidency.”
