A close political associate of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, Hon. Farouk Adamu Aliyu, at the weekend in Kano said three-time Presidential Candidate had accepted to run for the 2015 presidential elections, and that he was set to declare openly.
Aliyu said on a radio programme in Kano that he personally met with Buhari recently and that after long deliberations with he said he would run for the presidency again.
According to him, Buhari is not too old to run for the presidency in 2015.
He said: “Buhari is strong, alert and agile; if he refuses to run in 2015, I, Farouk Adamu Aliyu, will leave politics for life. This is a man, who was a former governor, a former petroleum minister, former GOC, and later head of state and PTF chairman, yet he has no foreign account or property in Lagos or Abuja, but has only a house in Kaduna and Daura.”
