2019: Give Me Time To Decide, Buhari Tells APC Governors
President Muhammadu Buhari has told governors of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to give him more time to decide on 2019 presidential election.
He said this when the governors met with him at the presidential villa, Abuja, shortly after the National Council of State meeting.
According to the Chairman of the Progressive Governor’s Forum, Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha, the president has not yet decided whether he would run or not.
He said, “The president told us to give him more time that he will get back to us.”
Okorocha stated that the decision to run lies with the president himself, adding, “We only pray it is what the governors want. We want the president to continue the good works he started about three years ago.”
Last week, the governors were with President Buhari in Daura but they did not discuss the issue of 2019 poll and whether the president would be contesting.
The governors went to Daura on a condolence visit to the president who lost two of his relatives.
President Buhari has been silent over his second term ambition even as the former President Olusegun Obasanjo had advised him not to contest anymore.
