The statement read in part:

Now our party must unite behind our candidate to achieve victory at the 2023 elections so that our government will continue to secure our communities, grow our economy and continue the fight against corruption.

During the Primaries, there were factions and disagreements amongst the contestants and now that the process has ended we must build a united front in our party.

Buhari further recalled how the party was formed and how it is beyond individuals, towards ensuring the entrenchment of democratic ideals in the country.

He stressed:

The movement we created in 2013 is beyond individuals. Together, we made history by becoming the first party in our country’s history to unseat a party in power and propel our candidate into the Presidency through a peaceful democratic transfer of power.

We strongly believe that Bola Ahmed Tinubu will safeguard and improve on this democratic achievement and legacy. He is the right candidate for Nigeria’s aspiration; because he is the APC’s candidate and under the continued stewardship of our party. Nigeria can achieve greatness and fulfil its destiny in Africa and the World.

Buhari added;

The high point of this extraordinary convention of our party was the energy of the presidential aspirants; and it is from amongst them that we have chosen the most popular leader.
