President Muhammadu Buhari, according to the Presidency, does not endorse and will not at any time support any faction within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The president announced this in reaction to a faction of the party in Kano State asserting that the president approves the formation and operation of the group.

The presidency made it clear on Saturday, December 25, 2021, that the president only endorses a truly united APC in a comment by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu.

The presidency wishes to counter a public statement by one of the factions of the All Progressives Congress in Kano State, that they have received the endorsement of President Muhammadu Buhari.

This is blatantly untrue. This cannot happen when matters are awaiting adjudication by the courts.

To be clear on this one, President Buhari has not endorsed any faction.

His support is for the All Progressives Congress as a party, united and strong, and not of any faction.

The APC is split up into two sections in Kano state. One is loyal to state governor Abdullahi Ganduje, while the other is devoted to Ibrahim Shekarau, a senator.
