Buhari made the declaration during the National Executive Committee meeting of the Al Progressives in Abuja Monday.
This follows months of uncertainty over the coming general elections with sections of the country demanding that the president step down amid the myriad of problems bedevilling the country.
Buhari until now had remained mum over his ambitions, but gave a hint when he bowed to pressure within the APC and cancelled the tenure elongation for party officials.
His decision to run is also in defiance of the call of two former heads of state – Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babngida – who in open letters called for frssh faces in 2019 citing the obvious failure of this administration.
Buhari is scheduled to be in the UK later today where he’ll meet Prime Minister Theresa May and other influential British and Nigerian residents in the UK.
