I’ll Spend Only One Term In Office If Elected, Atiku Vows

*“I am not Muhammadu Buhari. I do not make promises I cannot keep. I am willing to sign a written document. If you or any other Nigerian can come up with an iron-clad legal document that binds me, I am willing to publicly commit to it,” Atiku stated.

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has promised to spend just one term in office if elected as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Speaking in an interview with THISDAY, the presidential candidate expressed his readiness to sign an undertaking to the effect.

Insisting that he would keep his promise to spend only a tenure in office, Atiku said: “My own case will be different.

“I have said this before on my own initiative. I believe in it. If I am elected as the President in 2019, I give an undertaking that I would only do one term. Having said that, let me remind Nigerians that Buhari also gave such an undertaking in 2011, but he is not living up to it today. My own case will be different. I am prepared to sign an undertaking to do only one term.

“I am not Muhammadu Buhari. I do not make promises I cannot keep. I am assuring Nigerians that I will keep this promise. I am making it out here in the open. I am willing to sign a written document. If you or any other Nigerian can come up with an iron-clad legal document that binds me, I am willing to publicly commit to it.”
