They both spoke when the presidential aspirant visited the PDP Edo state secretariat in Benin on Monday as part of his consultations with stakeholders ahead of the party’s national convention.

Turaki who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria argued that the position of the president is illegal on the strength of the fact that it is inconsistent with the provisions of the constitution which is the supreme law of the land.

Besides, Turaki says that there is danger in the position of President Buhari because his government and his party, the APC have been equating national Interest with either personal interest or the interest of their party as they desperately attempt to cling to power.
