Nigeria's Buhari wants to run again in 2019 elections - presidency

Buhari has been criticized for aggravating Nigeria's worst recession in 25 years by introducing a currency peg that spooked investors and depleted foreign reserves.

A Second Republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed, has reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari declaration of his intentions to run for a second term in office.

Fayose, who spoke to newsmen in Ado-Ekiti on Monday on the President's intention, through his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, said if Buhari was unable to read the handwriting on the wall and know when to call it quit, Nigerians would show him the exit door in 2019 by voting him out of office.

According to the presidency sources, they were said to be a rented motely crowd of professionals protesting against the President on his arrival into the United Kingdom.

President Muhammad Buhari said he would be re-contesting because Nigerians want him to continue to be their President beyond 2019 so that he can continue his good works.

Adesina, who is the President's Special Adviser on Media and Publicity and now on the entourage of the president to London, was reacting to a contributor on Channel television programme via Skype, on Tuesday.


"And the other happened in 2011". No, the victory came in 2015.

During his campaigns, Buhari had promised Nigerians that he would be running for one term only, sighting his age as reason. "So that being quoted in 2011 is not applicable again".

Shehu said that President Buhari would also renew discussions with the Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Rev. and Rt. Hon.

"APC has been in this quagmire for quite a while because they do not seem to have an alternative option and now that the battle line is drawn, it is left for Nigerians to choose between life and darkness".

He said: "The President is a very responsible man". "He has pursued programmes of growth and made the country better".

"As I told my friends, State House journalists, it is a traditional practice all over the world, that a popular sitting president gets his political party's right of first refusal in seeking reelection".
