Part 1 of 2 of my most fervent prayers has just been answered. Buhari has announced to APC NEC (National Evil Committee) that he will seek re-election in 2019.
Part 2: to disgrace him out of office & prove that no man no matter how highly placed is near to God! Now loading

The most interesting thing about Buhari seeking reelection for a second term is that he will no longer hide under the guise of "No presidential debate" there must be a presidential debate whether you like it or not
