President Buhari Officially declares intention to run for second term

By on April 9, 2018

President Muhammadu Buhari has formally announced he will seek re-election for a second term in office come 2019.

President Buhari made the announcement on Monday April 9th at a meeting of the ruling All Progressives Congress leadership.

The National Executive Committee(NEC) meeting of the party is holding in Abuja.

President Buhari made the declaration after the media had left the NEC hall of APC secretariat in Abuja.

While the president has long indicated he will seek a second term of four years, this is his first public announcement.

Mr. Buhari took office on May 29, 2015 after defeating then incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan in the presidential election of that year.

One of his major backers in that election, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, in January advised him to drop his reelection bid, saying his administration had been a monumental failure.
