Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 Presidential election of his support.
Buhari disclosed this in a statement on Thursday evening, coming after the Tinubu campaign questioned the latest naira redesign policy and also called for the suspension of Nigeria’s Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele.
Buhari added that Tinubu has consistently demonstrated his commitment to democratic principles and to lasting development.
Unity and Progress: The President stated that Tinubu alongside his running mate, Kashim Shettima are deeply committed to the country’s unity and progress and that he is proud to support them,
Today we took the APC campaign message to Sokoto State. The candidate of our party, Bola Tinubu, and his running mate, Kasim Shettima, are capable men who understand the problems of Nigeria, are problem-solvers, and are deeply committed to the country’s unity and progress.
I will continue to say this: I have known and associated with Asiwaju for more than 20 years, and I am proud to support him as the Presidential candidate of our Party.
In every facet of his political life—including as Senator, and as two-term Governor of Lagos, Nigeria’s economic and financial hub, and home to diverse people from across Nigeria—he has consistently demonstrated his commitment to democratic principles and to lasting development.”
