Adjust Comment Print

President Buhari declared his intention to recontest in 2019, choosing the auspicious occasion of his party's NEC meeting to break the news.

"Don't forget that under Obasanjo when the process was affecting governance, he read a riot act and said let's concentrate on governance, President Buhari is just somebody like that, he will never allow politicking to affect governance".

According to security sources, the protesters are said to be bent on embarrassing and humiliating the President throughout his stay in the UK.

"At a time when the unemployment rate is pegged at 18.8%; when Nigerians are heartbreakingly dying in their thousands in the face of insurgency and unrest; when the freefalling of the economy is making life precariously uncomfortable for the common people, the least the President Buhari's administration could do is resign honorably". But did he win in that year, no. The victory came in 2015.

Akinbode said: "It didn't come as a surprise to me".

'Buhari must seek re-election' Buhari's decision to officially declare the intention to run for the second term follows various speculations.

With Nigerians preparing to vote next year, former Nigerian leaders have urged Buhari not to seek a second term in office.

In another development, the National Chairman of National Action Congress (NAC), Dr. Olapade Agoro, has described Buhari's declaration to re-contest in 2019 as an "attempt to continue tragedies and woes", which he said, characterised the present government.

He said: "The President is a very responsible man". Obasanjo was president here, he wanted a third term and he didn't get it.

"The Buhari / APC led Federal Govt has brought untold hardship, excruciating pains and debilitating poverty on Nigerians".

"It has been like this in the past one year even before he went for medical vacation, these calls had started coming but Mr President would not say a word and that reinforced my opinion that for him it was not a matter of do-or-die".

This was made known by President Buhari's spokesman, Femi Adesina while speaking on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme on Tuesday, April 10.
