Buhari Declares Interest For 2019 Election, Reappoints Amaechi Campaign DG

President Muhammadu Buhari has finally declared interest to re-run as president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2019 and he has also reappointed Rotimi Amaechi as his campaign Director-General.

With less than 13 months to the commencement of the 2019 general elections, there are strong indications that President Muhammadu Buhari has declared interest to seek re-election next year as he has reappointed his Minister of Transportation and former governor of Rivers State, Hon. Rotimi Amaechi, as the Director-General of his 2019 election campaign.

According to ThisDay reports, Amaechi, who was in charge of Buhari’s campaign in 2015, has already been issued a letter of appointment for next year’s election and would make an official announcement on his appointment anytime soon.

The President has hinted at re-contesting a few times in the past, but is refusing to officially share his aspirations openly.

Twice last year, Buhari had hinted at a possible presidential run, albeit subtly.

First, he did so during a summit on counter-terrorism in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, and the second time last November, when he visited Kano State on a two-day working visit.

Sources close to the All Progressives Congress (APC), also hinted that although a majority of party members are not averse to Buhari’s re-election bid, they have advised that things be done properly.

The ruling party chieftains expect Buhari to reach out to them personally to intimate them of his re-election bid.

In the meantime, Amaechi, the sources revealed, would hold a press briefing in the next few days to announce his appointment as well as unveil the agenda for the Buhari 2019 project.
