I Won’t Contest Elections Again After 2019 – Buhari

President Buhari Tells Imo APC Supporters to Choose Whoever They Like
Written by ParaBOLA
President Muhammadu Buhari has promised not to abuse the constitution, noting that he would stop contesting after this coming election.

While speaking at a meeting with the royal fathers in the Government House, he said the 2019 election would be the fifth time he is contesting for Presidency.

Recall that Buhari ran for the office of the president under All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP), in 2003 and 2007 and failed. He changed to Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), in 2011 and equally failed.

But in 2015 when he changed to APC, he won and took the mantle of leadership from Ex-president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

In a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the president charged traditional rulers to do more in curbing banditry and kidnapping in their communities, saying that he felt disappointed that people close to some of them were found to have a hand in such criminality.

His words, “We are determined to defend the nation and its people. We are disappointed with some of the things going on. You are responsible for the security of your neighborhood. Being close to your people, you know them. You are still relevant. I am sorry this has extended to some of your families.

“More security is not good news, but we must do something to secure our environment.”

The President commended the gallantry of the security agencies in battling kidnapping and banditry, saying “you know what we have achieved. You had one who styled himself as Buharin Daji, the Buhari of the forests, claiming to be in charge and not I at the centre. He is no more, and by my surviving him, you now know who is stronger.”
