‘Run to Daura!’- Nigerians react to Buhari’s re-election bid

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Nigerians on social media have reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’s formal declaration to run for the presidency again in 2019. This follows Buhari’s decision to put an end to speculations surrounding his interest in returning to power at the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Executive Council (NEC) meeting which held on Monday.

The reactions have been mostly negative for obvious reasons, top of which is the fact that the President spent almost half of his current tenure outside of the country tending to his health crisis. Also, ‘change’ administration has not ‘changed’ the plight of the common man. Although his stance against corruption has been the strongest selling point of his APC led government, this has been described as ineffective by international bodies like Transparency International; and as one-sided by the opposition.
