According to the presidency’s brief, the president will not “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 presidency stated.
