Buhari Declares Intention To Run In Presidential Poll
General Buhari was the presidential candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change, one of the parties that merged to form the APC, in the 2011 general election but lost to President Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP.
Also in the race for the same position under the APC, is a former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar. However they will have to go through the primaries to be sure of a chance to run against the ruling party.
For General Buhari, if his plan was upheld, it would be the fourth time he would be running for the position
