The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (Ret’d.), on Wednesday, met with the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Tinubu, at the presidential villa in Abuja.
The president’s meeting with Tinubu is coming hours after he declared to support his campaign and other candidates of the party with “full energy and conviction”.
According to Buhari, his declaration to Tinubu is to dispel the claim that he is against the presidential ambition of the former governor of Lagos state.
He said, “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 noted that the APC campaigns have so far been the most aggressive in recent history. They have been impressive and of a high voltage, compared to the opposition that seems to be playing catch-up.”
Recall, that the Vice president, Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, also visited Tinubu days ago in support of his presidential ambition.
