Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed on Thursday said it is preposterous for anyone to even suggest that President Muhammadu Buhari is not working for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to emerge president.
Mohammed spoke in a statement to clarify misrepresentation in the interview he granted to newsmen on Wednesday where he was quoted as saying that Buhari is not supporting any of the presidential candidate.
According to the minister, “it is preposterous to even suggest that Mr President, who is the leader of our party, is equivocating on his support for our presidential candidate.”
He said on Wednesday, while reacting to a question at the post-Federal Executive Council (FEC) briefing at the State House, he did said, inter alia, that the president was committed to free, fair and credible elections.
“This comment has been misinterpreted in some circles, especially with regard to Mr President’s support for the presidential candidate of our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” he said.
Mohammed added that “I want to say, unequivocally, that Mr President is in total support of our party’s flag bearer, and that is attested to by his continuing campaign with the candidate across the country.”
