0 57

After the national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Senator Adamu Abdullahi, announced that the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan is the consensus candidate of the party, the National Working Committee (NWC) backed Northern Governors of the party on power shift to the South.

The Northern Governors had on Monday insisted on power shift after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

But contrary to the national chairman, President Buhari told governors of APC-controlled northern states that he had no preferred presidential aspirant in the ruling party and the party should ‘allow the delegates to decide’ its presidential candidate.

According to Garba Shehu in a statement released after the president’s meeting with the governor on Monday, Buhari said, “Allow the delegates to decide. The party must participate, nobody will appoint anybody.”

A total of 23 presidential aspirants are seeking the party’s ticket.
