Mohammed made the clarifications in his opening remarks at the 22nd PMB Administration Scorecard in Abuja.
He said: “Let me use this occasion to make a quick clarification. Yesterday, while reacting to a question at the post-FEC briefing at the State.
House, I said, inter alia, that Mr. President is committed to free, fair, and credible elections, and that he is doing everything possible to ensure a level playing field for all contestants.
“This comment has been misinterpreted in some circles, especially with regard to Mr. President’s support for the presidential candidate of our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
” Well, I want to say, unequivocally, that Mr. President is in total support of our party’s flag bearer, and that is attested to by his continuing campaign with the candidate across the country.
” It is preposterous to even suggest that Mr. President, who is the leader of our party, is equivocating on his support for our presidential candidate. I hope this clears any ambiguity that may have arisen from my statement yesterday.”
