The Presidency through Mr Garba Shehu stated that no stone will be left unturned as Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala moves to make history.
The spokesperson added that President Buhari has been reaching out to world leaders on the matter.
“President Buhari has been talking to all world leaders, at some point, Ngozi had a list of those to be talked to, so President Buhari talked to them, some to thank for being so strong in their support, some may be to be encouraged to firm up their support for her candidacy and we are seeing the result of this,” Mr Shehu said.
