Buhari, a few hours ago at the National Executive Council meeting, made known his intention to contest the presidency again in 2019.
A social media aide to the President, Bashir Ahmad, broke the news earlier on Monday (today) via his social media page with the hashtag #PMBForNigeria 2019.
Reactions to Buhari’s declaration are swift, as Nigerians greet the news with different reactions.

The man knew that his 2nd term declaration is unpopular, unpleasant and unpalatable to the vast majority of Nigerians which is why he ran away to London as soon as he announced the news. One would have thought he is contesting for @Theresa_May’s job the way he dashes to the UK.
