Buhari fully behind Imo APC governorship candidate, says Garba Shehu

The Presidency through Garba Shehu said President Muhammadu Buhari is fully behind the candidates of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo state.

The Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President stated this while speaking to newsmen in State House dismissed insinuations that Buhari did not show full support for the APC when he campaigned in Imo state.

Shehu said: “The massive crowd that gathered to welcome president Buhari in Imo state was made up of not only supporters of the APC in the state, but also supporters of other parties who are united by their love for the president and their desire to see him re-elected, despite the local candidates they support.”

According to Shehu, “while president Buhari is fully behind APC, he welcomes endorsements from those who do not belong to the ruling party but is also sensitive to their support for non-APC candidates at the local level. It would have been insensitive of him to offend his non-APC supporters by ignoring their local affiliations.”

“President Buhari is for the APC in every state and there is no doubt about that; despite his immense cross-party support,” he said.

OkayNG recalls that the president had told Imo people to vote for their preferred candidate from either different party, ethnics or religion.
