ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan announced on Tuesday that he would seek a second term in a February 2015 presidential election in Africa's biggest economy and top oil producer.

"After seeking the face of God, and in the quiet of my family ... I have accepted to present myself," Jonathan told a crowd of hundreds of cheering supporters at a rally in Abuja.
