Amosun was joined by the Ogun state governorship competitor of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), Abdulkadir Adekunle Akinlade, amid the visit.
The announcement read: “Following rehashed media enquiries on the issue, the Presidency wishes to state in clear and indisputable terms that as a gathering head and a competitor on the stage of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the coming races, President Muhammadu Buhari will crusade for the gathering and every one of its applicants.
“This, in any case, does not imply that he, as the country’s head, will decay graciousness calls or offers of help from natives including hopefuls flying the banners of different gatherings.
“There is no uncertainty that the President has no opposition here as far as prominence in the coming races. Be that as it may, the more help he gets, the more extensive the edge of triumph there will be.
“So please let there be no perplexity about this. President Buhari is APC. He will battle for all APC competitors, yet he invites support and supports.”

Amosun, at the gathering, displayed a letter of reception of the President by APM as the gathering’s presidential competitor in Feb. 16 general decisions.
The representative said the underwriting letter was given to him by the gathering for ahead introduction to the president, including that with the support, Buhari, whom he depicted as a man with great heart, would collect huge votes in the 2019 presidential decisions.
