Elder statesman, Chief Robert Clarke, has called for the extension of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), who said this on Monday, argued that the months preceding the 2023 elections are not sufficient to put an end to the insecurity, making the conduct of election possible.
Speaking when he featured on ARISE Television, Clarke maintained that the Constitution provides that the President can extend his tenure for six months, in the first instance, if he feels that conditions are not good to carry out elections.
He averred that it was wrong to believe that the President cannot stay in office for more than eight years of two tenures.
Clarke said the President can continue to give himself fresh six months extension a time elections could be held.
