2019: ‘I’m Not Aware Buhari Is Running’ – Oyegun
National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has said he is not aware that President Muhammadu Buhari was preparing to seek a second term in office in 2019.
Oyegun, who stated this at the weekend in Abuja, noted that the party has not received any communication from the president.
His words: “I don’t even know where you people are picking this information from. The president has not told the party formally, officially, that he wants to run for second term. We only read these things in the newspapers. So, officially, I’m not aware that Buhari is running again. I only read what you people write.”
When asked if the president must inform the party that he is seeking re-election, Oyegun said: “Either he inform the party officially or he make a declaration or whichever, he will certainly take a decision.”
