President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he will fully support the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu in the 2023 election.
Buhari, also revealed that he will support all the candidates of the ruling party in the elections.
The President in a statement by his senior special assistant on media and publicity, Garba Shehu stated that he will not support those that instituted court cases against validly elected candidates of the party.
The statement reads, “The Presidency wishes to put it on record, and at the same time, reassure faithful party members that President Muhammadu Buhari remains a “disciplined soldier” of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and will, in all the coming elections, support only those candidates fielded by the party and no other,” the statement reads.
“This is a warning to decamped party members and some others who are still in court against official candidates of the APC that they are on their own and nobody outside the party tent should link what they are doing to President Buhari.
“The President wishes to be quoted as saying that he is the “occupant of the high office of the President by the Grace of God who used the instrumentality of the APC to bring him to power with a historic verdict in 2015.”
“In 2019, he was returned with a bigger majority. For the first time, a non-PDP government came to power with a huge majority after 16 years of the Fourth Republic. His constant refrain is: “I will not betray or undermine my party by supporting candidates other than those of the APC.”
