President Muhammadu Buhari has requested for more time to decide if he will run for the 2019 presidential election.


According to the Chairman, APC Governors Forum and Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, the President was not definite on the request made by the Governors to declare his intention for 2019.

The governors met him at the First Lady’s Wing of the presidential villa, Abuja in a meeting which lasted for about an hour and a half.

Okorocha who briefed State House correspondents after the meeting said  “We discussed so many issues that affect the nations, our party and Mr President’s ambition to run for 2019 elections.

“It is the desire of the governors that Mr President should run for this exalted office given his performance in the last two years. We believe that if he continues Nigeria will be better for it.

“Anyhow, Mr President in his usual manner has requested that we give him time and that he will address the nation’s and the caucus of the party very soon. So we should be full of expectations that Mr President will make officially known to Nigerians his intentions but we hope that his response will be in line with what the governors are thinking”.
