The presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said he has the backing of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to lead Nigeria come 2023.
He commended Buhari for his ‘loyalty and commitment’ to the party, even as he expressed confidence of the APC’s “victory in the February 25 presidential polls”.
These were contained in a statement on Saturday by his Media Adviser, Tunde Rahman.
