The Presidential Candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in the 2011 general elections, Muhammadu Buhari, has declared his intention to re-contest the seat in the 2015 general elections.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mr. Buhari made his intention known while addressing CPC supporters in Kaduna who visited him.
He told the crowd that he would not quit politics.
“I am still in until the polity is sanitised and people enjoy the fruits of democracy at all levels of government,” he said.
The CPC leader also pledged to ensure that the party continues to field credible candidates at the polls.
He urged party supporters to close ranks for victory in future elections.
Mr. Buhari advised security agencies, the judiciary, and INEC to exhibit a high degree of professionalism and patriotism at all times for the progress of the country.
He also urged youths to shun acts of violence, thuggery and money politics to make their future better.
Mr. Buhari enjoined the people to canvass for their rights by emulating Nasarawa and other areas where CPC triumphed.
Ibrahim Kailani, the Leader of the group and Igabi Local Government Council Chairmanship aspirant in Kaduna State, had earlier urged Mr. Buhari not to abandon the people.
He solicited for Mr. Buhari’s support ahead of the upcoming local government polls in the state and subsequent national elections.
