Naija hit play
According to reports, President Muhammadu Buhari has reappointed his Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, as the Director-General (DG) of his 2019 election campaign.
Buhari may have finally made the decision to seek re-election and has started preparing to campaign
Amaechi, who led Buhari’s campaign in 2015, has been issued a letter of appointment for next year’s election and would make an official announcement on his appointment anytime soon.
The President has hinted at contesting a few times in the past, but is refusing to share his aspirations with many people.
He has, however, discussed the matter with Amaechi, who had convinced him to run in 2015.
According to ThisDay, cources close to the All Progressives Congress (APC), also hinted that although a majority of party members are not averse to Buhari’s re-election bid, they have advised that things be done properly.
The ruling party chieftains expect Buhari to reach out to them personally to intimate them of his re-election bid.
