- The PRP has adopted President Buhari as its candidate for presidency
- The party noted that it was comfortable with the president's policies
- The party’s support was only for the presidential race and not at state level
The People’s Redemption Party (PRP) in Jigawa state has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for re-election.
Daily Trust reports that the party adopted Buhari as its presidential candidate on Wednesday, February 20.
Ahmed Kaugama who is the PRP governorship candidate in Jigawa state spoke in Dutse where he said the party was comfortable with the policies of President Buhari.
Kaugama who was represented by his running mate, Shamsuddeen Aujara, said the party has no presidential candidate which is why it endorsed President Buhari
He however noted that his party’s support was only for the president but at state level, his party was firm and fully on ground in the governorship race.
While some of the parties with no presidential candidate are adopting Buhari as their candidate, others are throwing their weight behind Atiku Abubakar.
Recall that Social Democratic Party (SDP) earlier called on its members and other electorate to vote en masse on Saturday for its adopted presidential candidate, Atiku of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
A factional chairman of the party, Chief Supo Shonibare, made the call at a news briefing after the faction’s National Working Committee meeting on Wednesday, in Abuja.
Shonibare urged the electorate across the country not to be deterred by the postponement of the election but to come out to vote for Abubakar, who would tackle “poverty, unemployment and undemocratic tenets.’’

He said that the adoption of Abubakar by the SDP as its candidate was in consonance with the agreement reached among the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) members, which SDP was part of.
