An insider vowed that they will take their demonstrations to the venue of CHOGM holding later in the month in Britain, which President Buhari is attending as a Commonwealth Head of State.

The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has declared his intention to run for a second term in the upcoming 2019 General Elections.

Speaking at the APC NEC meeting, President Buhari thanked members of the Technical Committee for a job well done within a limited time frame, which laid to rest the protracted tussle surrounding tenure elongation for party leaders. He added that concerning the President's statement in 2011 when he said will do just one term, it is no longer 'applicable'.

A few hours after close of the meeting, Special adviser to the President on New media and engagement, Bashir Ahmad in a tweet on his official handle @BashirAhmaad also confirmed the President's declaration. No, the victory came in 2015. "So, that being quoted in 2011 is not applicable again because he did not win that year".

On the purported vote of no confidence allegedly passed on the President by Northern Elders Forum and the Council for Shariah, Adesina said the two groups had the constitutional right to support anybody vying for political office in the country.

The governor also said that the president's declaration would not be a distraction to his administration but rather strengthen the business of government.

According to security sources, the protesters were said to be bent on embarrassing and humiliating the President throughout his stay in the UK.

I will NEVER keep quiet no matter the insults directed at me.I am always conscious of "stupid people in large numbers" and they will never get at me. "He has pursued programmes of growth and made the country better".
