In a statement, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu confirmed that the president has declared to seek re-election.

Buhari said he took the step in response to the clamour of Nigerians asking him to seek re-election.

The statement read: “President Muhammadu Monday in Abuja declared his intention to seek re-election in 2019. President Buhari made the declaration at a closed-door meeting of the National Executive Council of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“The President said he was responding to the clamour by Nigerians to re-contest in 2019, adding that he wanted to give NEC the honour of notifying them first.

“Shortly before making the declaration, the President presented a speech on the report submitted by the APC National Executive Technical Committee,” stated.

“It is true that the president has announced his intention to run at the 2019 elections”, the House of Representative majority leader, Alhassan Dogwa confirmed the development to newsmen outside the party secretariat.

Also confirming it, the Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, told newsmen after the NEC meeting that the president was elated with the return of peace among the folds of the party.

Lalong further noted that the committee’s report which brought unity to the party, was accepted by all its leaders including the president, stressing: “Everybody’s interest was considered in the report and it was a unanimous vote and adoption of the recommendations that were made.

“The president felt so happy and excited because of this unity in the party. He now considered and also accepted the appeal by several members of the society, party and everybody that he will contest the 2019 election. He has accepted that he is going to contest again the position of President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

Speaking earlier in his introductory remarks, President Buhari had commended the Governor Lalong-led technical committee for doing a good job in its recommendations to the contentious extension of the tenure of the national and state officials.

“I want to specifically thank members of the technical committee for a job well done within a limited time frame. It shows the essence of commitment and the ideals of our party with a view to consolidating the party to continue to provide good governance in the overall interest of Nigerians.

“The general interest of the party and based on the report submitted by the technical committee, it is important to focus on how to move the party forward by avoiding actions detrimental to the interest of the party.

“Considering that politics is a game of numbers, we must not be a house divided against itself and must try to appreciate and accommodate our differences as far as the law permits.

“Having seen the report, my position is to ensure that the party toes the path of unity, legality, cohesion and not that of division.

Therefore, I am stressing that we strengthen our internal democracy by organising party congresses and convention where election of national executive committee members will be held.

“This will automatically end the cases filed by members seeking orders of court compelling the party to hold its congresses. I also believe that the current executives should be free to run for elective position in the party if they so wish and permitted by our party constitution.

“However, considering the provision of Article 30 Section 1 and Subsection 3 of our party constitution which requires any serving officer desirous seeking re-election to resign from office 30 days before the election, I’m not sure of the practicality of the present servings officers ability to meet this condition.

At least, six persons, including a policeman, were reportedly killed on Sunday and Monday, in Ijebu Igbo, Ogun State, when suspected cult members clashed with members of the O’odua Peoples Congress (OPC).

Several persons were equally reported to have been injured in the fracas.

Daily Sun learnt that the clash occurred during a “Thank You Tour” of  Ijebu North local government by the senator representing Ogun East, Buruji Kashamu.

It was also gathered that the fight, which claimed the lives of four unidentified cultists and one OPC member, threw Ijebu Igbo into panic.

Meanwhile, the deadly clash spilled over to Monday, when two policemen were shot, leaving one dead and the other seriously injured.

A source in the town, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told our correspondent that the clash was as a result of the long-standing animosity between the cult group and OPC.

According to him, OPC members had, three months ago, killed a leader of the cult group, which had pitted the group against the OPC.

The source added that colleagues of the slain cultist spotted the OPC members responsible for the killing at Senator Kashamu’s rally.

The cultists trailed the OPC group in the senator’s tour to Oke Sopen area of Ijebu Igbo, where they engaged the group in a gun battle.

The police in the state confirmed the clash on Sunday, but said only three persons died.

The police public relations officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, informed our correspondent that a suspected cult member, one OPC member and a police inspector died in the skirmish.

He said normalcy has since returned to the town, adding that the area commander of Ijebu Ode had been directed by Commissioner of Police Ahmed Iliyasu to move to Ijebu Igbo and maintain law and order.
