Buhari's 2nd Term Declaration: See What Nigerians Are Saying
It is no longer news that President Muhammadu Buhari has officially declared to run for office the second time.
Buhari, a few hours ago at the National Executive Council meeting, made known his intention to contest the presidency again in 2019.
A social media aide to the President, Bashir Ahmad, broke the news earlier on Monday (today) via his social media page with the hashtag #PMBForNigeria 2019.
Reactions to Buhari’s declaration are swift, as Nigerians greet the news with different reactions.

Buhari announces plans to go for 2nd term......— PostMaster (@O_ssai) April 9, 2018
One of the most exasperating things about Buhari is this impression he creates that he is doing the office and Nigerians a huge favour just by sleeping and waking up in the Villa. Said impression is amplified by the worst cohort of presidential aides in living memory.— Pius Adesanmi (@pius_adesanmi) April 9, 2018
Need to mute APC,PVC, INEC & all that stuff. All my efforts in 2015 didn’t stop senators from getting 13m a month. Didn’t stop Buhari from sending ministers to welcome his son at the airport or walking on a red carpet at the scene of a kidnap of young girls. Need my sanity.— Babanla (@biolakazeem) April 9, 2018
If Buhari is the best for this country, God let him win again.— Khaleenaldo 7 (@Rx_Khaleel) April 9, 2018
If Buhari is not the best for this country... Ya Allah substitute him with the best one for us!!! Ameen ????

Breaking news... Buhari confirms he is running for second term... Good luck Sir...— Dele Momodu Ovation (@DeleMomodu) April 9, 2018
It is almost prophetic that President @MBuhari chose to announce his 2nd term through @Elrufai. Rearrange that name and you find that the same words that make up failure, make up Elrufai. As Lai's destiny is to lie for Buhari, so Elrufai's destiny is to prophesy Buhari's failure!— Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) April 9, 2018
