Buhari Declares Intention To Contest In 2015 Presidential Election



A former Nigerian Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari, has declared his intention to contest in the presidential election of 2015.

 General Buhari said he would contest on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and promised to restore Nigeria’s honour if elected as President next year.

He made the official declaration on Wednesday before a large gathering of APC members at the Eagle Square in Abuja.

The former Head of State said he would tackle issues of insecurity, corruption, unemployment and power generation among others if elected.

During a visit to the governor of Kwara State, Abdulfattah Ahmed, on Tuesday, General Buhari had  insisted on continuing to contest for the position since there was no constitutional limit to how many times anyone could contest for political posts.

General Buhari had contested for the same position three times in the past.
