Despite the opposing moves to oust the All Progressives Congress (APC) government, Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has submitted his nomination form to seek re-election for the post of the president.
Buhari, who on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 expressed appreciation to the Nigerian Consolidation Ambassadors Network (NCAN) that bought him the N45 million form, said he would continue to serve the country to the best of his ability.
The group presented the form to him on Tuesday at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Speaking during the submission of the form, the president said: “I’m here in person among friends and colleagues to put my name forward to my party, the All Progressives Congress, seeking nomination to contest the presidential election next year 2019.
“Fellow party members, I’m taking this step with all humility, sense of responsibility and an unquestionable desire to serve and protect the interest of all Nigerians.
“I’m really grateful to those dozens of organisations who have joined together and contributed fund to purchase this form.
“I assure them and the rest of Nigerians that if nominated and if elected, I shall continue to serve you to the best of my ability. Let me today appeal to party members not to be complacent but to prepare, strategise and win 2019 elections.
“We must not allow those who brought the country to its knees from 1999 to 2015 to take us back.”
