President Muhammadu Buhari

Seven governors,  including Gov. Nasiru el-Rufa’i of Kaduna State,  on Friday met with President Muhammadu Buhari at  the Presidential Villa, Abuja, and reiterated the need for him to re-contest in the 2019 presidential election.

El-Rufa’i, who spoke to State House correspondents after the closed door meeting with the president, said though their meeting was apolitical, the governors  wanted him to continue running the country beyond 2019.

According to him, people are free to continue to speculate about the 2019 elections  but he  and other governors are interested in continuity and stability of the country.

He said: “We are politicians and those of us you see here want the president to contest the 2019 election, we have no apologies for that.
