President Muhammad Buhari said he would be re-contesting because Nigerians want him to continue to be their President beyond 2019 so that he can continue his good works.
The President made this known when he declared his reelection bid on the 9th April 2018 during his Party’s (APC) National Executive Council meeting in Abuja.
At the end of the NEC meeting, Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong spoke for the president.
“The President felt so happy and excited because of this unity in the party; he will now consider and also accept the appeal by several members of the society, party and everybody that he will contest the 2019 election.
“He has accepted that he is going to contest again the position of President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said.
