Is Buhari Under Foreign Pressure Not to Seek Re-Election?

The presidency has denied claims that President Muhammadu Buhari is being pressured to shelve his intent to run for the second term in office by the United States, United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia. Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, has described the story as fiction, insisting that those countries are democratic nations that would never interfere.
