President Muhammadu Buhari has solicited the vote of Nigerians for his party man, Bola Tinubu, during the upcoming general election set to commence on Saturday, February 25.
The president made the appeal via his official Twitter handle on Sunday, saying that Tinubu will continue his administration’s achievements.
“I am not a contestant in the coming election, but my party, the All Progressives Congress, has a candidate in the person of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” President Buhari wrote.
“I am calling on all of you to vote for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He is reliable, a true believer in Nigeria, and he will build on our achievements.”
The president also pleaded with Nigerians to exercise patience as the government has embarked on measures to ease the hardship caused by the Central Bank of Nigeria’s naira redesign project.
He tweeted, “I am fully aware of the current hardship being faced as a result of some policies meant to bring overall improvement to the country.
“I’m appealing to you to exercise further patience as we take measures to ease these hardships. God willing, there is light at the end of the tunnel.”
