The Presidency on Wednesday said the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), is ready to campaign for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, and all candidates of the APC with “full energy and conviction.”
This followed concerns in certain quarters that the President has not featured in APC campaigns.
The Presidency said while Buhari remains committed to party politics, the functions and duties of the President will take precedence.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, revealed this in a statement 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.”
