Buhari To Declare Presidential Ambition Soon.
Following his nationwide consultation over next year’s general elections, former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari may likely declare for the presidential race within the next few days.
One of his political aides disclosed that Buhari was set to contest the 2015 presidential election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Leadership reports that the aide who pleaded anonymity for tactical reasons revealed this to some journalists in Abuja yesterday, August 27.
He said: “General Muhammadu Buhari has been making consultations with stakeholders cutting across all the divides over next year’s general elections. Those he has been meeting include politicians, both within and outside the APC, religious leaders, opinion leaders, youths and market women in every state of the federation and the feelers we are getting are encouraging.
“We are rounding off with the consultations and within the next few days, General Buhari would publicly declare for the race and it is our hope that he would not only emerge the presidential candidate of APC but would eventually be elected come February 2015.”
