President Buhari Wednesday played host to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby at the Abuja House in London as part of his itinerary in the United Kingdom ahead of the Commonwealth Head of Government meeting.
The President told Welby that his intention to seek a second term in office come 2019, was informed by the demand of Nigerians following the upliftment of their living standard.
Welby, a long standing friend of the Nigerian President, welcomed the news of Buhari’s declaration and pledged his support.
The highly respected British Clergyman said: “ You have my best wishes on your recent decision.
“I read your declaration speech. We are neutral as a church, but we will pray for you. Great statesmen are those who run for the good of their country.
“We will be praying for you,” Welby assured Buhari.
