A two-term member of the House of Representatives and aspirant of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Saturday’s by-election for Bauchi South Senatorial District, Lawal-Yahaya Gumau Friday said if he given the mandate, he will push for a constitutional amendment that will make President Muhammadu Buhari the number one citizen till he passes on.
According to Daily Post, the aspirant said his only aspiration for participating in the polls was to defend the interest of the President.
“I, Lawal-Yahaya Gumau, want you to know that the mandate that will be given to me on Saturday is to go and protect Buhari’s interest in the Senate. This is the only mandate that I will be going to the Senate with, having fulfilled every other mandate to the best of my ability while in the House of Representatives for eight years.
“By God’s grace, we will amend Nigeria’s Constitution to allow Buhari to be President for the remaining years of his life. He will only cease to be President when God takes his life.
“Obasanjo tried all his best for the constitution to be amended to allow him go for a third term, but God didn’t approve of it because of his lack of sincerity. What is now needed in Nigeria is to protect Buhari’s interest and that is what we will do,” the newspaper quoted him.
