2019 elections: Buhari declares intention to run for president again

2019 Youth movement declares support for President Buhari’s re-election bid

Even more, it has become obvious that there are more sycophants around President Buhari than truth-sayers.

Buhari's announcement came Monday (April 9) amid growing criticism of his performance and concerns in his ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) about his plans.

"The president should apologise to us for this collective insult and should stage zonal consultative town hall meetings whereby he will in person directly tell Nigerians that he has on his own volition, not by threats, coercion or blackmails, chosen to run for a second term", the group stated. He has that right for re-election.

Giving his reaction to journalists at the presidential villa, Abuja on Monday, he observed that the president had been under pressure to declare for the race.

We will never understand the damage the present administration has caused until the President is voted out in 2019. "Same for governors and open ended for legislators", he said.

A few hours after close of the meeting, Special adviser to the President on New media and engagement, Bashir Ahmad in a tweet on his official handle @BashirAhmaad also confirmed the President's declaration.

"The other one about doing one term was when he was running in 2011. So, that being quoted in 2011 is not applicable again because he did not win that year".

Abdullahi, however, said members were delighted that President Buhari finally announced that he would recontest, saying his declaration has given some kind of direction to the party.

It added that Nigerians should consider the re-election bid as a major step to consolidate and re-invent the country into an emerging economic and democratic world power.

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

"But I know the President, as a very, very responsible man".

"It is just a matter of serving the country and If he feels that he has done it with the best of his ability that is just it, " he said.
