President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that he is completely behind the choice of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The President’s statement was contained in his written responses to questions posed by Bloomberg News.
Speaking on whether he plans to endorse a candidate for president and if so, who? Buhari said “Yes. I will endorse the APC candidate for president.”
Also, defending Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor, Godwin Emeifele’s presidential bid, President Buhari said Emefiele was a victim of accusations
According to him, “the CBN governor is appointed by the President. But this appointment is subject to confirmation by the Nigerian Senate.
“Ultimately, it will be for the CBN’s board of directors to determine whether a CBN governor’s actions have fallen foul of the laws in place to ensure he can most effectively carry out his duties.
“But there is a subtext to the accusations. Because the governor follows a model outside of the economic orthodoxy, he is labeled political. But the orthodoxy has proved wrong time and again.
“Instead, the governor is following an alternative economic model that puts people at the heart of policy. Nigeria should be free to choose its development model and how to construct our economy, so it functions for Nigerians.”
