Buhari Why President declared second term ambition before London trip

President Buhari does not want the politics generated by his possible second term run to distract him from the important national matters.

President Muhammadu Buhari has explained why he declared his intention to seek re-election in 2019 before leaving Nigeria for the United Kingdom.

Buhari announced his second term ambition during the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on April 9, 2018, the same day he travelled to London.

He said he made the declaration because the politics generated by his possible second term run was getting in the way of important issues like security, economy, anti-corruption among others.

The President stated this when he received the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace Justin Welby in London on Wednesday, April 11, 2018.

"I declared before leaving home because Nigerians were talking too much about whether I would run or not. So, I felt I should break the ice. We have many things to focus on, like security, agriculture, economy, anti-corruption, and many others. We needed to concentrate on them, and politics should not be a distraction. The majority of Nigerians appreciate what we are doing, and that is why I am re-contesting," Buhari said.
