He said his comment that “The president is committed to free, fair, and credible elections, and that he is doing everything possible to ensure a level playing field for all contenders,” was misinterpreted by some sections of the media.

“Yesterday, while responding to a question at the post-Federal Executive Council briefing in the House of Representatives, I said, among other things, that Mr. President is committed to free, fair and credible elections.

“This comment has been misinterpreted in some circles, especially regarding Mr. President’s support for our party’s All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“I want to say, unequivocally, that the president fully supports the standard-bearer of our party, and this is attested by his continuous campaign with the candidate throughout the country.

“It is absurd to even suggest that Mr. President, who is the leader of our party, is wrong in his support for our presidential candidate.

“I hope this clears up any ambiguity that may have arisen from my statement yesterday,” he said.
