President Buhari will soon address the nation on his plans to run for a second term or not in office. Imo state governor and Chairman of the APC Governors forum, Rochas Okorocha, disclosed this while speaking to state house correspondents after the Council of State meeting in Abuja last week, Okorocha said he hopes that President Buhari’s decision will be favorable as himself and the APC governors believe Nigeria will be better for it if President Buhari continues in office.
We discussed so many issues that affect the nation, our party and Mr President’s ambition to run for 2019 elections. Anyhow, Mr President in his usual manner has requested that we give him time and that he will address the nation 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. We believe that if he continues Nigeria will be better for it.’’ he said
