Charles Enya, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi state who served as the organising secretary for President Buhari’s campaign organization during the 2019 general election has filed a suit (FHC/AI/CS/90/19) before a federal high court in Abakiliki seeking the amendment of the constitution to allow President Muhammadu Buhari get another term in office.

The APC member described the two-term tenure limit for presidents and governors as “discriminatory”  in relation to the executive and legislative branches of government in Nigeria, in the suit which has Mohammed Sani-Omolori, clerk of the national assembly; the national assembly and Abubakar Malami, attorney-general of the federation and minister of justice as defendants. 

He asked the court to prevail on the defendants to remove constitutional clauses hindering elected presidents and governors from seeking a third term in office. 

Daily Trust reported that he is seeking an “order of the court nullifying and setting aside section 137(1)(b) and 182(1) (b) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) and directing the first and second defendants to delete and expunge sections 137(1)(b) and 182(1)(b) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, (as amended).”

This is coming after President Buhari debunked reports of seeking a third term in office.
