2019 elections: Buhari speaks on ‘campaigning’ for other political parties’ candidates



President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed to campaign for only candidates of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the forthcoming elections.

President Buhari said he “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.”

This is following another visit by Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun to the Presidential Villa on Sunday.

Amosun is seeking support for his choiced candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement, APM, Abdulkadir Adekunle Akinlade for the governorship poll.

A statement made available to DAILY POST on Sunday by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said, “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.”
