The Presidency on Wednesday disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari would campaign for the presidential Candidate, Bola Tinubu, and all candidates of the All Progressives Congress in the upcoming general elections.
This clarification followed insinuations that the President has not attended the party’s presidential campaigns since November 15.
The president’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, made this disclosure in a statement he signed on Wednesday titled ‘President Buhari ready to campaign for Tinubu and all APC candidates with energy and conviction.’
According to Shehu, the President “assures the All Progressives Congress and its candidates in the elections next year that he is ready at all times to campaign for the Presidential Candidate and all party candidates with “full energy and conviction.”
“This is to dispel expressed concerns in certain quarters that the President has not featured in campaigns since the national launch in Jos, Plateau State and to stress that while he remains committed to party politics, the functions and duties of the President will equally be upheld at times.”
The President, while speaking with the Nigerian community in Washington DC during his recent visit to United States said he “is ready to campaign for the party’s victory in the general elections next year.”
He further confessed that the party’s ruling a high-powered campaign that has never been witnessed in recent times.
He, however, said the opposition seems not to be having serious electioneering campaigns, thereby expressing hope that the party would emerge victorious at the polls.
