Elder Statesman, Alhaji Tanko Yakasai, says he is not surprised with President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to seek re-election in 2019.

Buhari, at a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of APC on Monday in Abuja, announced his intention to seek a second term in 2019.
Yakasai and others spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in separate interview in Kano.
Yakasai said “I’m not surprised at the announced because the president’s body language had already indicated that he would re-contest for the office.”
The statesman, who was a Special Adviser on National Assembly Matters to former President Shehu Shagari, said the “Buhari’s decision was much-awaited.”
On his part, an Islamic scholar in Kano, Malam Dauda Makera, commended Buhari for the decision to seek re-election.
He, however, expressed the hope that the APC would conduct primaries to produce credible candidates at all levels.
“We are happy that President Buhari has declared his intention to re-contest for the Presidency but our hope is that the party will conduct primaries,” he said.
The cleric said that conducting primaries would strengthen the party and produce the most popular candidates to prevent imposition of unpopular candidates on the electorate.
