2023: What Buhari Told APC Governors About Tinubu Candidacy

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) governors to work for the victory of the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu .

The Nigerian leader made this known in a letter addressed to Governor Abubakar Bagudu

of Kebbi State and Chairman, Progressives Governor Forum (PGF).

Presidential Spokesman, Garba Shehu

stated this in a statement released on Thursday night in Abuja.

Buhari called on the governors to ensure that Tinubu emerge as his successor in 2023 and the APC repeat the success story of the party in the 2015 and 2019 elections.

In the letter, Buhari described the just-concluded APC presidential primary election as one the most competitive and peaceful in the history of Nigeria’s democracy.

The President also commended the role played by Bagudu in the success of the primary that produced Tinubu as the party’s standard-bearer in the 2023 elections.

Buhari also appreciated the Kebbi governor and his colleagues for their commitment to the pursuit of equity and fairness during the APC Special Convention.

The letter reads: “I was pleased to see how you were very professional and efficient in handling the sensitive political position of Chairman Progressives Governors Forum.

“Your commitment in pursuit of equity and fairness speaks volumes in the cooperation displayed by APC Governors. This indeed demonstrates the camaraderie that brought us together over 8 years ago.

“The party primaries were peacefully conducted and the delegates have selected the candidate to carry the APC flag in the 2023 Presidential Primaries.

“Today, as a patriotic APC member and stakeholder, I trust that you will come together to work with our candidate to win the 2023 elections.

“In the past 7 years in government, we have achieved a lot. However, we have a lot more to do. The APC project is far from over and we need all of you to come together to ensure our progressive journey to peace and prosperity is sustained.

“Our candidate, His Excellency, Sen, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is no stranger to you. He is our friend and brother. We know his commitment, his track record, and his capacity to lead our party to success. So now is the time for all of us to come together and march forward, as we did in 2015, to a convincing APC victory.

“I look forward to working closely with APC Governors to support Sen. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and all our APC candidates to success in 2023.

“While I wish our great part success in the 2023 elections, please accept, the assurances of my consideration and personal regards.”
