Buhari said this while receiving the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace Justin Welby at the Abuja House in London Wednesday.

Yusuf Musa Ardo, has called on Nigerians at home and in Diaspora to support President Muhammadu Buhari to win the 2019 re-election bid.

He purported that the President declaring his intention to seek a re-election at this time would have an effect on the nation, stressing that Nigeria does not have a system that can run on its own if its president is campaigning. So, I felt I should break the ice.

"We needed to concentrate on them, and politics should not be a distraction".

Okeh said the declaration had finally laid to rest speculations surrounding the president's interest and silenced some individuals of interest calling on him not to contest.

Predators take 2-0 lead over Avalanche
Bourque put Colorado up 1-0 on the Avs' first shot 2:34 into the game after a turnover in the defensive zone by Hartman. Nashville (-340) is now favored over Colorado (+270) and the Over/Under (O/U) is set at 6 goals (-130 over, +110 under).

THE House of Representatives has advised the Presidency to follow due process in obtaining one billion dollars from Nigeria's Excess Crude Account (ECA) to fight insurgency. Fellow Nigerians will be interested to learn from the debate whether the APC, as a party, would risk losing power back to the People's Democratic Party (PDP) or whether the ruling party can sagely tap on the prevailing thirst for generational change in leadership and produce a younger, visionary, and dynamic leader who has the requisite knowledge, preparations, and the capacity to unleash the abundant potential of Nigeria to greatness.

Mansur Dan-Ali, minister of defence, had said Buhari gave the approval for the money to be released but Ita Enang, senior special assistant to the president on national assembly matters, later contradicted Dan Ali.

"It is incontrovertible that President Buhari is on a private trip to the United Kingdom as he was not received on arrival, by the government of that country; has not had any contact with the British Prime Minister, Theresa May or any high official of the United Kingdom government and has not conducted any official business since his arrival to the country on Monday".

"More astonishing is the fact that President Buhari did not transmit a letter to the National Assembly indicating that he was going on a week's vacation ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM)", the statement read, adding that "The intervention of the federal legislature has become a national imperative, as the President's action has put the nation in clear danger".
