2023 Election: FG not aware of Aso Villa elements, President Buhari more concerned on Credible polls – Lai Mohammed

Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed on Wednesday, stated that President Muhammadu Buhari is not favouring any presidential candidate in the 2023 presidential elections.

The minister stated this in Abuja at the end of the Federal Executive Council meeting noting that the president is only focused on free and fair elections in Nigeria.

Mohammed was responding to a journalist who asked him to respond to the claim by the Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai that some officials at the Presidency did not want Bola Tinubu, the candidate of the ruling party, to win this month’s presidential election.

He said, “One thing I can assure you is that no matter what, this administration is focused, determined to ensure free and fair elections. But I think with this administration the most important person is Mr President and I think he has shown by words and indeed that he is dedicated to free, fair and credible election,” he said.

“And fair, free, credible elections actually means not favouring anybody, not ‘disadvantaging’ anybody. And everywhere he goes he makes that very clear even as recently as Friday when he was in Daura, he said the same thing.”
