Will Nigerian President Seek Re-Election in 2019?

Comments by the Minister of Women Affairs Aisha Alhassan have heightened uncertainty over whether President Muhammadu Buhari plans to contest the next election. Aisha Alhassan revealed that Buhari told members of his party before he was first elected that he would only seek one term, implying he did not intend at that time to run in 2019.
