President Muhammadu Buhari has informed the national executive committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that he will be seeking a second term in office.
The information was tweeted by Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, on Monday.
This is the first time that Buhari will publicly announce his re-election bid, though there have been indications that he would seek another term.
When he went to Benue to commiserate with the people over the loss of lives during clashes between farmers and herdsmen, the president said he might return to the state for campaign.
Also reacting to the mammoth crowd that received him in Kano last year, Buhari said a direct message had been sent to his opponent.
With his declaration, the campaign team will “swing into action”.
Buhari is set to leave for London at the end of the ongoing NEC meeting at the party headquarters in Abuja.
