President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday in Sokoto told the Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Mohammed Sa’ad Abubakar 111 that he joined the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu Presidential campaign for three reasons,

President Buhari stated this when he led the APC presidential campaign team on a courtesy call to the Sultan.

He told the Sultan that the campaign team was at the palace to solicit his continuous support and that he chose to join the campaign train of Asiwaju Tinubu for three reasons.

He said he and Tinubu have been together as friends for the last 20 years and the fact that he performed wonderfully well when he was Governor of Lagos State.

“The third one is that Tinubu won my party’s presidential primary in a free, fair and credible process and therefore, he is the legitimate candidate of my party.”

He appealed to Sultan to support Tinubu, who Sultan called; “The Jagaban of the World.”

He said, ” We (him and Tinubu) have been together for more than twenty years. I know him as a very committed Nigerian. I can attest to his qualities as a leader and I can assure you with him Nigeria will remain in safe hands.

“I came to solicit your support for our candidate and I know you will continue to support us.”

Speaking earlier, the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu told the Sultan that he was in the race to win.

He said, “It is a great honour to be here particularly in the company of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to visit the caliphate. You already know but I must repeat, this is a visit to introduce me as the presidential candidate of my party, the APC.

“We recognize you don’t play politics but we have to show our respect when we come to town for the campaign.

“We noted one thing on our way to the palace. The enthusiasm of our people. We are grateful for the peace and co-existence of individuals and your accommodation of various people living in Sokoto.

“We want to win the election and since that is what we come for, we seek your blessing and endorsement. It is something you cannot reject because Mr President is here.”
