President Muhammadu Buhari said on Saturday that he will continue to support the candidacy of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu because he has known he for over twenty years.
Buhari made the pledge at a rally of his party in Lafia, Nasarawa State, according to a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
“I have known him for more than 20 years ago, and I will continue to campaign for Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” Buhari told party supporters at the presidential campaign rally in Lafia square, where he endorsed the candidature of Tinubu, his running mate, Kashim Shettima and the second-term bid of Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa.
Buhari thanked party supporters for defying the hot weather for hours to show their support for the party’s flag bearers in the forthcoming presidential and governorship elections.
‘‘I congratulate and assure you that God willing we are going to win through and through.
“As Tinubu said in his speech, I have known him for more than 20 years ago, and I will continue to campaign for Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He is a committed Nigerian and I believe he will give all his best to Nigeria.
‘‘Also vote for Abdullahi Sule for a second and final term as governor’’ the president said.
