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 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.
