“No one can annex public office as a personal chattel. That’s why I recoil from the razzmatazz of public office.”
Keyamo’s comment is coming at a time where talks on third term agenda and 2023 presidency are stirring up the polity.
It could be recalled that former Lagos governor, Bola Tinubu, on Tuesday, dismissed speculations that President Muhammadu Buhari had a third term agenda.
