Tinubu Buhari Amaechi

President Muhammadu Buhari has clarified the decision to delay his announcement on his desire to recontest his position in the 2019 General Elections. Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Mr Femi Adesina explained in a statement that he took the step to douse rising speculations and give the All Progressives Congress (APC) enough time to prepare for the poll.

“I had to announce before the National Executive Committee of our party, my intention to ask for the party’s nomination for next year’s election so that we can save a lot of time and cool tempers,” said the President when he received members of the Buhari Support Group Centre (BSGC) at the State House in Abuja.

“A lot of people were trying to make it a habit of being a nuisance to themselves and many Nigerians, so when I came out, I said those who are serious let them come out.

“And I tried to make sure that the party is organised and consolidated so that we start from the bottom to the top, and that Nigerians will be involved in a way that each constituency will pick those that are going to represent them at various levels, whether as local government chairmen, in the State Assembly, House of Representatives, Senate and finally the president,” he added.
