The Arewa Consultative Forum has endorsed President Buhari for re-election four days to the presidential election.

He said they checked their track record and achievement before making a decision.
The group noted the progress made in the fight against insurgency in the Buhari administration.

Meanwhile, a lawmaker of the Second Republic, Junaid Mohammed, on Tuesday, February 12, advised President Buhari against his plan to contest in the 2019 presidential election.
Mohammed pleaded with the president to take a bow, exit from governance and return home to take care of his troubling health. The former lawmaker said such action from President Buhari would save Nigeria from woes suffered from his inability to hold the country's affairs together.
