The Presidency Sunday said President Muhammadu Buhari would campaign for all candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the coming election as leader of the party.
In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, it noted, however, that Buhari would not decline courtesy calls and offers of support from candidates of other parties.
“Following repeated media enquiries on the matter, the Presidency wishes to state in clear and unmistakable terms that as a party leader and a candidate on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the coming elections, President Muhammadu Buhari will campaign for the party and all its candidates.
“This however does not mean that he, as the nation’s leader, will decline courtesy calls or offers of support from citizens including candidates flying the flags of other parties.
“There is no doubt that the President has no competition here in terms of popularity in the coming elections. But the more support he gets, the wider the margin of victory there will be.
“So please let there be no confusion about this. President Buhari is APC.”He will campaign for all APC candidates, but he welcomes support and endorsements,” the statement read.
