President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed confidence that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, would win the election.
According to him, APC is lucky to have Tinubu as its presidential candidate.
When asked the chances of the APC in the 2023 elections, Buhari said: We’re going to win the election.
“Tinubu, the presidential candidate, a very well-known politician in the country, he was a two-term governor in Lagos State, the most resourceful state and the most visited state. So, I think the party was lucky to get him to be the candidate,” he said.
The president also asked Nigerians to vote whomever they like from whichever political party during the 2023 general election.
He said nobody would be allowed to mobilise resources and thugs to intimidate people in any constituency.
He spoke in London, UK on Wednesday evening after meeting with King Charles III at the Buckingham Palace.
“My aim is to make sure that Nigerians believe that we respect them as an administration.
“That’s what I want to go down in Nigerian history for as a leader,” the president said.
The president said his meeting with King Charles focused on strengthening bilateral relationship with the United Kingdom.
He said the British monarch was very interested in Nigeria “maybe because of Nigeria’s relationship with Britain for long, our economic strength, I think we’re still of great attachment to them.”
