Garba Shehu, President Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, made the pledge in a statement on Friday.
“By the Holy Qur’an, I swear that I will serve in accordance with the constitution and will depart when my term is up. There will be no “Tazarce” (tenure extension). I don’t want anyone to start advocating for unconstitutional extension or campaigning for it. President Buhari is quoted by Shehu as saying, “I will not accept that,” at a meeting in Makkah with a select group of Nigerians living in Saudi Arabia, where he recently concluded a visit.
The Nigerian President also implied support for efforts to increase the use of technology in the country’s elections, claiming that the introduction of the card reader and electronic register was God’s answer to his prayers after he was cheated out of three previous elections.
“I said, ‘God Dey,’ after the third so-called defeat. My opponents mocked me, but God answered my prayers by bringing technology into the picture. Nobody can steal or buy their votes at that point,” the President added.

The President, who concluded his visit to the Kingdom with Friday prayers at the Grand Mosque in Makkah, stated that he will continue to uphold the constitution in all of its ramifications and that he will supervise and deal with his ministers on the same basis at all times.
At the meeting, he promised that in the “eighteen months or so of my time remaining, whatever I can do to improve the lives of Nigerians, I will do it for the country.”
President Buhari praised Nigerians in the diaspora in the Kingdom for effectively representing the country and projecting a positive image.
According to reports, President Trump took advantage of the opportunity to call on citizens at home to be fair to his administration at all times, asking critics to compare the security situations in the North East and South-South in 2015 and how things have improved since then.
“My issue is in the North West, where people are murdering and robbing one another.” I had to be tough on them, and I’ll keep being tough until we get them in line and restore order,” he said.
President Buhari urged Nigerians living in the country to uphold the law, remain law-abiding, and do nothing to jeopardise the two countries’ long-standing friendly and mutually beneficial relationship.
