Nigerians have taken to the micro-social media platform, Twitter, to express their views about the news of the official declaration by President Muhammadu Buhari to run for second term.
Buhari, a few hours ago at the National Executive Council meeting, made known his intention to contest the presidency again in 2019.
A social media aide to the President, Bashir Ahmad, broke the news earlier on Monday (today) via his social media page with the hashtag #PMBForNigeria 2019.
Reactions to Buhari’s declaration are swift, as Nigerians greet the news with different reactions.

…seeking re-election for doing nothing in 3years? That's corruption!

It is within the president's right to seek re-election. It is also within the right of the citizens to say NO to incompetence and bad leadership.
