AKURE—THE Chairman, Senate Committee on Science and Technology, Professor Robert Boroffice weekend tackled Ekiti stare governor Ayodele Fayose over his comment that President Muhammadu Buhari should retire from politics in 2019.
In a congratulatory statement signed by his Media Adviser, Kayode Fakuyi, the senator, who is representing Ondo North Senatorial District of Ondo State, described President Muhammadu Buhari as foremost patriot and democrat.
Boroffice said advice from Governor Ayodele Fayose that Mr President should not consider seeking re-election due to age consideration should be ignored.
“Mr President cannot be blackmailed. The reserved right of Mr President to either seek re-election or not should be respected by every Nigerian who believes in the provisions of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended.”
