Buhari stated that Tinubu’s selection as the APC’s presidential candidate was fortunate.
He responded to the likelihood that the APC would win the 2023 presidential election while speaking in the United Kingdom.
When asked whether the APC would lose the election in 2023, Buhari responded:
What are the odds that my party won’t prevail in the election? The election will go in our favor.
“Tinubu, the presidential candidate and a well-known politician in the nation, served as governor of Lagos State for two terms. Lagos is the most resourceful and well-traveled state in the nation.
“Therefore, I believe the party was fortunate to have him as the candidate.”
