Former Head of State General Muhammadu Buhari has said he will run for president again as the race for 2015 general elections begins to pick up momentum.

It is “a must obligation on me,” he told a political group, the Kano State Political Movement (KSP), whose members paid him sallah homage at the weekend in Kaduna.

Buhari ran three times in the presidential contest and lost to candidates of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party.

But his party, the CPC, has just merged with two other opposition parties to challenge the dominance of the ruling PDP.

Buhari told his visitors he is being propelled to run again in the election “because of the continuous and excessive exploitation and degradation of the common man by the powers that be in this country.”

He said the struggle for the emancipation of Nigerian masses from the clutches of what he called bad leaders and bad governance “is a matter of life and death.”

General Buhari added that his knowledge of the vast wealth Nigeria is endowed with and the enormous embezzlement and extravagance by the powers that be make him to be ever resilient in looking for ways to the position of presidency, “for us to try and remedy things so that Nigerians can live well and enjoy their wealth”.

He said what is needed most under the new party, APC, is large scale enlightenment and awareness of the majority of Nigerians who are ignorant of the situation, and they are being exploited.

He said however, that the people have begun to learn through experience, due to lack of basic amenities of life, which are supposed to be provided by the government.

Speaking earlier, the KSPM chairman Alhaji Bello Isa Bayero said they were at Buhari’s residence, in order to pay Sallah homage as well as to congratulate him for the success in registering APC as full pledged political party. He re emphasized the support of Kano people to Buhari, whom he said are the foremost in supporting him and will forever remain so.
