Recall that the President on 15 November 2022, attended the flag-off of the APC presidential campaign in Jos, the Plateau State capital.

He however absent himself from the campaign activities, which triggered speculations about his commitment to the APC presidential ticket.

“The PCC expresses its profound gratitude to President Buhari, the leader of our great Party, for his sterling and inspirational leadership at this time and for galvanising our teeming members and supporters across the country,” Mr Keyamo said.

“We urge our party faithful and supporters to turn out en masse, as usual, in the forthcoming campaign rallies.

“The zero hour is nigh; our spirits must be high; we must not relent in this collective march to our victory that is divinely ordained.”

Reports however said the President’s presence in the APC presidential train might draw more support and voters for the Tinubu-Shettima ticket.
