Buhari won’t support Amosun’s opposition governorship candidate — Presidency

The Presidency in reaction to media inquiries following the repeated meetings of Mr Buhari with the Ogun APM candidate said the president will work for all APC candidates.

A spokesperson of the president, Garba Shehu, who issued a statement Sunday said this.

“Following repeated media enquiries on the matter, the Presidency wishes to state in clear and unmistakable terms that as a party leader and a candidate on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the coming elections, President Muhammadu Buhari will campaign for the party and all its candidates.”

Mr Shehu said this position, does not however mean that Mr Buhari, as the nation’s leader will decline courtesy calls or offers of support from citizens including candidates flying the flags of other parties.

“There is no doubt that the president has no competition here in terms of popularity in the coming elections. But the more support he gets, the wider the margin of victory there will be.

“So please let there be no confusion about this. President Buhari is APC. He will campaign for all APC candidates, but he welcomes support and endorsements,” Mr Shehu said.
