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.
