Garba Shehu, the president’s spokesman, said he made the call when he received Dikko Radda, the governorship candidate of the APC and his running mate, Faruk Lawal Jobe, at his private residence in Daura, Katsina on Friday.
According to Mr Buhari, party leaders need “to sit together,” to avoid divisions and ensure unity in order to avoid defeat at the elections.
He said he received frequent reports on the ongoing campaigns in Katsina State and felt happy that so much hard work was being put into the exercise.
The president reiterated his determination to allow the reign of free, fair and credible elections in the country.
Mr Buhari added that the outcomes in Anambra, Ekiti and Osun were testimonies of that resolution on his part.
He added that he felt honoured by the visit and wished the party a very good outcome in the contests.
