2819: President Buhari May take Another Shot


Following intense pressure mounted on him by Some APC Governors to seek re-election, President Muhammadu Buhari has hinted that he might take another shot at the Presidency in 2019

President Buhari dropped the hint jokingly on Tuesday night while interacting with the Nigerian community in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire where he is currently attending the 5th European Union-African Union (EU-AU) Summit.

The President while apologizing for keeping those that came for the interactive session waiting, explained that he insisted on having governors Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom State and Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State to be part of his entourage to Abidjan so that Nigerians in Côte d’Ivoire from the two states will be happy that he was accompanied by their governors and that might earn him votes in future.

President of the African Development Bank Akinwumi Adesina had thanked President Buhari for supporting him to get the AFDB top job, making him the first Nigerian to occupy that office.

President Buhari said that his support for Akinwumi Adesina, despite serving as minister in a PDP-led government was to further confirm his remarks at his inauguration on May 29th, 2015, that he belongs to everybody and nobody.
