Imo state governor and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governors' Forum, Rochas Okorocha says President Muhammadu Buhari has requested for time to decide on whether or not to seek re-election in 2019.

The governor, however, stated that the governors would meet with the president soon to deliberate on the 2019 election.

Former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida had in their separate letters written to the incumbent President recently advised him against seeking reelection in 2019, after an extensive review of his score card.

Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha told State House correspondents after the meeting which was held behind closed doors that the governors all praised the President for his efforts and achievements so far.

During the meeting, the governors had called on the President to go for a second term, but he opted to carry out more consultations before deciding.

The governor said, "We discussed so many issues that affect the nation, our party and Mr. President's ambition to run for the 2019 presidential election".

Thursday's meeting comes six days after the governors visited the President in his hometown Daura, Katsina State.

Okorocha told journalists that the governors were in Daura to commiserate with President Buhari over the loss of two members of his extended family.

So we should be full of expectations that Mr President will make his intention to Nigerians officially.

He said: "We believe that if he continues Nigeria will be better for it". The calculation, according to the source, is for governors like him to use Buhari's re-election to legitimise and build more momentum for their personal and selfish political aspirations to get re-elected.
