The President of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the governors of the All Progressives Congress for more time to make a decision on the 2019 election.
This was made known by the governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha.
He said Buhari gave this statement during a meeting with governors at the presidential villa in Abuja on Thursday night.
“We discussed so many issues that affect the nations, our party and Mr. President’s ambition to run for 2019 elections,” governor Okorocha said.
“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.
“But Mr. President, in his usual manner, has requested that we give him time. He said 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.”
