Ibrahim Mantu, a former deputy senate president, has disclosed how former president Olusegun Obasanjo third term agenda failed in 2006. Obasanjo was unhappy that the plan to extend his tenure beyond the two terms approved by the Constitution failed as the senate in 2006 overwhelmingly declined an offer to amend the Nigerian Constitution, which would have made Obasanjo entitled to contest again for president, after eight years in office.

Obasanjo’s  third term agenda “failed because most of the senators bought into the campaign of those people who did not want Obasanjo to have another tenure.” Mantu said.
