A presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina has debunked rumors that President Muhammadu Buhari is supporting the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, for the presidency in the 2023 general election.

It’s Too Early For Buhari To Support Any Aspirant For 2023 Presidency - Femi Adesina

Adesina stated this on Friday night while reacting to reports on if Buhari’s recent visit to Tinubu in London, the United Kingdom, was about talks on the 2023 elections.

KanyiDaily recalls that President Buhari had visited Tinubu in London, where the APC chieftain is reportedly recuperating after undergoing a second surgery in one month.

Buhari’s Visit To Tinubu Was About ‘Goodwill’

Speaking during an interview with Channels Television, Adesina explained that the meeting between Buhari and Tinubu on Thursday was about “goodwill and best wishes”

“That meeting actually happened, but it is all about goodwill and best wishes. We know that asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu had been in London about the same time the president was there,” he said.

“Like you said, we don’t believe what we read in social media but we have read a lot about asiwaju Tinubu’s health, so the president’s visit was a goodwill visit.”

Too Early For Buhari To Support 2023 Presidential Aspirant

The presidential spokesperson said it will be unlike Buhari to jump the gun on supporting presidential aspirants for the 2023 election because it’s too early.

“The president still has two years less three months in his tenure of office. So, for him to start supporting somebody now will just be like jumping the gun and you know that President Buhari will never do that.

“Before the 2019 election, people began to campaign for him before INEC blew the whistle for campaign to start. He was the one who came out to say ‘no, don’t do it; don’t jump the gun’.

“The president himself will dare not jump the gun in terms of supporting one candidate or the other. Also, recall that he had said anybody that wants to be president after him should go out and work.

“That means the president may not be supporting anybody until maybe perhaps a candidate of the party emerges. Knowing President Buhari, he will never jump the gun.”

Meanwhile, President Buhari has returned to Nigeria after a three-week trip to the UK, where he visited Tinubu and attended the Global Education Summit.
