The former head of state of Nigeria and a presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Major General Muhammadu Buhari, has postponed his official declaration for his aspiration to run for presidency formerly scheduled for Wednesday, October 8, 2014.
The new date for the official declaration has been fixed to be on Wednesday, October 15.
This was made known through a statement which was released from the office of the Director General of Buhari’s campaign organisation, Dr. Audu Ogbeh.
A part of the statement stated: “The Buhari Presidential Campaign Organisation announced that the formal declaration ceremony by General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) of his intention to contest the 2015 presidential election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been postponed for one week.
“By this announcement of postponement from today, October 8, the event is now slated for October 15, at Eagle Square, Abuja.”
Meanwhile, there was no given reason as regards the reschedule by the Buhari supporters.
However, it was learnt that the event was shifted following the Adamawa governorship election which will take place on Saturday, October 11.
RB Magazine reports that a second reason for the reschedule was speculated to be owing to the fact that most of his supporters are currently in Mecca, Saudi Arabia for the Islamic Hajj and are yet to return. So the declaration is expected to take its full f ledge once they all come back.
