According to the National Caucus of the All Progressives Congress, President Muhammadu Buhari must seek a second term in office, come 2019.
At a meeting held on Tuesday night, the national caucus said the endorsement of President Buhari for a second term would help to stabilise the polity and further help the nation recover from the 16-year rot inherited from Peoples Democratic Party.
The national caucus of the APC- serving and former governors, the National Assembly leadership, and selected members of the national executive of the party- were said to have arrived at a consensus that President Buhari should be allowed to contest a second term.
Vanguard reports that the caucus members however, agreed that it would be too early to begin a second term campaign for the President.
The report further stated that the issue of Buhari’s second term was discussed due to the activities of some party leaders – which has indicated their desire for the presidency in 2019.
“With Buhari contesting in 2019, those who have been squabbling will now have to queue up behind him and put the interest of the party ahead,” a source privy to the development was quoted to have said.
