It is emerging from the Presidency that President MUHAMMADU BUHARI will seek a second term in office come twenty nineteen.

A strong-worded statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam GARBA SHEHU, also vehemently dismissed comments that it would be a lonely walk for the President, a development expected to serve as a punishment for perceived bad governance.

According to SHEHU “Ordinary Nigerians are the backbone of the President’s mandate and the only reason he ran for the office is to protect them against the rapacious merchants of corruption, who have held Nigeria back for decades. GALADIMA’s calculation and prediction are utterly confused and misleading.”, end of quote.
