When asked about the chances of APC in the 2023 election, Buhari said: “what are the chances of my party not winning the election? We are going to win the election.

President Buhari added that “Tinubu is a very well-known politician in the country. He was a two term governor in Lagos State, the most resourceful and visited state. So, I do think the party is fortunate to have him as a candidate.”
