Buhari seeks APC governors support for Tinubu
As political parties in the country gear up for the general elections, President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Progressives Governors’ Forum (PGF) and other party members to work together and ensure victory for Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the party.
In a letter addressed to the Chairman of PGF, Atiku Bagudu, the governor of Kebbi State, Buhari, said Tinubu is no stranger to the governors.
In the letter, Buhari commended the Kebbi State governor, who served as the chairman of the election committee of the just-concluded convention, for his professional and efficient conduct of the primary election.
“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,” he said.
The president said he looks forward to working with the governors to ensure Tinubu wins the 2023 election.
