Some jokers are going about saying VP Osinbajo can only contest once, confusing their followers about the bill President Muhammadu Buhari signed into law that limits a vice-president or deputy governor who completes the terms of their principals to seeking reelection only once more.
Now let me make it clear, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan COMPLETED the term of Yaradua due to his death and that was GEJ’s first oath as President – then he contested and won in 2011 which made him took another oath as President! So the bill has killed whatever intention GEJ may have to contest anymore! For having taken the oath as President twice.
This bill does not apply to Prof. Yemi Osinbajo. He is still the VP, he has never taken oath as the President but VICE.
Those singing that song are either wishing the President death or calling for his resignation. Only then can this bill affects PYO, which is only the dream of the bad bellies.
Let me also quote Sen. Ita Enang while addressing the press on the day this bill was signed: “And the fact is that having taken the oath as President once, and you can only contest for once again and no more. That is the intent of this amendment.”
