President Muhammadu Buhari and some of his top aides yesterday met secretly with Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State to inform him that Mr. Buhari intends to run again for the Presidency as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.

A senior Presidency source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, stated that the decision to inform Mr. El-Rufai was taken because the governor was being touted as Mr. Buhari’s replacement in the event that the president cannot run for a second term in 2019 due to ill health.
