President Muhammadu Buhari has assented to the Constitution Fourth Alteration Bill which bars presidents and governors from being sworn into office more than twice. According to the new law, any second-in-command , who has been sworn in to complete the tenure of an elected president or governor, cannot do more than a single fresh term. The president’s senior special assistant on National Assembly (Senate), Ita Enang, who disclosed this in a statement, said, “The other one is Act or Bill number 16, which is now an Act, and the intent of that Act is to ensure that where a vice president succeeds that president or where a deputy governor succeeds a governor, he can no more contest for that office more than once. And the fact is that having taken the oath as president once, you can only contest for once again and no more. That is the intent of this amendment.” President Buhari also assented to a bill which grants financial autonomy and independence to the State Houses of Assembly and to the Judiciary of

the states. Enang noted that, upon this assent, the amounts standing to the credit of the judiciary are to be now paid directly to the judiciary of those states. Also, the amounts standing to the credit of the Houses of Assembly of the respective states are now to be paid directly to the Houses of Assembly of the respective states for the benefit of the legislators and the management of the State Houses of Assembly. They will no longer be paid through the governors. “This allows the State Houses of Assembly to operate like the National Assembly does because the National Assembly does not get its fund from the executive,” he stated. LEADERSHIP Weekend reports that this law now grants full financial autonomy to both the judiciary and the Houses of Assembly at the state level. Consequently, the law that bars persons from being sworn into elective offices thrice has ruled out the likes of former president Goodluck Jonathan from running for election in the 2019 general election and subsequently. It would be recalled that Jonathan was first sworn in as president in May 2010 after the death of President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua. After completing Yar’Adua’s tenure, Jonathan contested and won the presidential election in 2011. He contested again in 2015 and lost, but with this new law, he ineligible to contest again.

The federal government yesterday punctured former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s allegations of plots by President Muhammadu Buhari to frame him up, saying it is only those with skeletons in their cupboard that should be afraid of even their own shadows. Obasanjo had earlier yesterday alleged that the Buhari administration had placed his name on a watch list and was planning to frame him up with a phantom crime just to jail him because of his recent “frank comments” against the government. The former president, in a statement issued in Abeokuta by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, claimed that impeccable sources within the nation’s security system had informed him that his name was on the federal government’s watch list. But in a swift reaction, the federal government said the Buhari administration would not be distracted by frivolous allegations from any quarter, especially those cleverly choreographed to divert attention from a widely-acclaimed presidential proclamation and to shore up

support for a waning and egotistical cause. In a statement issued in Lagos, the minister of information and culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, noted that while those who have skeletons in their wardrobes should be afraid, even of their own shadows, innocent persons need not worry about any investigation, whether real or imagined. He said the administration is too busy trying to clear the mess of 16 years and build on its unprecedented achievements over the past three years to waste its energy and time on framing up anyone or dwelling on issues that are not grounded in fact. Mohammed stated: “This administration will never engage in a frame-up of innocent citizens. That is neither in the character of President Muhammadu Buhari nor in that of his administration. Only the guilty should be worried. To paraphrase an African proverb, a man who has no wife cannot lose an in-law to the cold hands of death.
