President Muhammadu Buhari
Ahead of the 2023 general elections, President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that he will only campaign for candidates under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to presidential spokesperson Garba Shehu, Buhari will not recognise former members of the party or politicians who have court cases against APC candidates.
This was contained in a statement on Wednesday, August 24.
The statement reads in part: "The Presidency wishes to put it on record, and at the same time, reassure faithful party members that President Muhammadu Buhari remains a 'disciplined soldier' of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and will, in all the coming elections, support only those candidates fielded by the party and no other.
"This is a warning to decamped party members and some others who are still in court against official candidates of the APC that they are on their own and nobody outside the party tent should link what they are doing to President Buhari."
