Buhari in Support of Tinubu's Presidential Ambition - Lai Mohammed

Paschal Emeka, Abuja | February 2, 2023

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has clarified that President Muhammadu Buhari is in total support of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and presidential flag bearer, Bola Tinubu, in the forthcoming election.

He made the clarification on Thursday in Abuja at the 22nd edition of the PMB Administration Scorecard Series (2015-2023), organized to project the achievements of the Buhari government.

“The President is committed to free, fair and credible elections, and that he is doing everything possible to ensure a level-playing field for all contestants”, was misinterpreted by some sections of the media.

“Yesterday, while reacting to a question at the post-Federal Executive Council briefing at the State House, I said, inter alia, that Mr. President is committed to a free, fair, and credible election.

“This comment has been misinterpreted in some circles, especially with regard to Mr. President’s support for the presidential candidate of our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“I want to say, unequivocally, that Mr. President is in total support of our party’s flag bearer, and that is attested to by his continuing campaign with the candidate across the country.

“It is preposterous to even suggest that Mr. President, who is the leader of our party, is equivocating in his support for our presidential candidate.

“I hope this clears any ambiguity that may have arisen from my statement yesterday.
