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

Buhari made the announcement on Monday, April 9, 2018, at a meeting of the ruling All Progressives Congress leadership.

The National Executive Committe, NEC, meeting of the party is holding in Abuja.

Buhari made the declaration after the media had left the NEC hall of APC secretariat in Abuja.

Alhassan Doguwa, the Chief Whip of the House of Representatives, confirmed this to journalists that “It is true that the president has announced his commitment to seek re election in 2019”.

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