We Had No 'Feeling' That Buhari Will Seek Re-election, Says Adesina

But the presidential aide maintained that it was not on record that Buhari had told the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) or any member of the party that he would do only one term in office.

I will NEVER keep quiet no matter the insults directed at me.I am always conscious of "stupid people in large numbers" and they will never get at me. We don't want grandpa as president anymore. We didn't at all.

"What I can add, after all that I have said is to inform you that of recent, our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari gave approval for the purchase of more equipment for the military, worth $1bn", the minister had said.

The OurMumuDonDo Movement abundantly condemns and rejects the reelection declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari, and we wish to state unequivocally that we shall persistently, albeit non-violently, demand a better deal for Nigerians come 2019. This was after he handed over power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who functioned as Acting President then.

There are also questions about his health after he spent much of 2017 in a London hospital with an undisclosed illness.

Buhari has been criticized for aggravating Nigeria's worst recession in 25 years by introducing a currency peg that spooked investors and depleted foreign reserves.

Yemi Akinbode, who contributed to the programme, said he was not surprised by the president's declaration in spite of his pledge in 2014 not to seek re-election.

According to security sources, the protesters were said to be bent on embarrassing and humiliating the President throughout his stay in the UK.

"That's a misquote. If there is anything on record like that, it is a misquote".

In his reaction to this development last night, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu said that the President will not be distracted from his mission in the UK.

"And the other happened in 2011".
