Ekiti over his suggestion that  President Muhammadu Buhari, should retire from politics in 2019 having clocked 75.

Buhari and Fayose

Fayose on Saturday congratulated Buhari and said it would be honourable for the president to step down now, saying he had served the nation as he could with advanced age.

Boroffice, who is representing Ondo  North Senatorial District, lambasted Fayose.

“The advice from Gov. Ayodele Fayose that Mr President should not consider seeking re-election due to age consideration should be ignored.

“Mr President cannot be blackmailed and his right to to  seek re-election should be respected by every Nigerian who believes in the provisions of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended),” he said.

He said  it was instructive to note that the constitution does not impose age restriction on a president who wishes to seek re-election.

“Indeed, advanced age is not a liability but an asset. Also, septuagenarian level does not in anyway suggest a chink in the armour but it radiates gutsiness,” it said.

Boroffice wished Buhari  many more hearty and healthy years in the service of humanity.
