BREAKING: Buhari declares to run for second term

Chris Steven, Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari has formally announced he will seek re-election in 2019.

President Buhari made the announcement on Monday at a meeting of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership.

This has laid to rest speculations about the interest of the President to seek re-election.

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

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