Ahmad lawan and Abdullahi Adamu

The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has announced Senate President Ahmed Lawan as APC consensus candidate ahead of the party’s presidential primary election slated for Tuesday.

Adamu made the announcement at the meeting of National Working Committee (NWC) on Monday in Abuja.

Other aspirants including Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; Dr. Kayode Fayemi and David Umahi, among others will however be allowed to contest the primary at the convention holding tomorrow at the Eagle Square, Abuja.

KEMI FILANI NEWS had earlier reported that President Muhamamdu Buhari has urged the National Advisory Council of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to “actively” push for a consensus candidate ahead of the party’s presidential primary slated for Tuesday in Abuja

The NWC members insisted other aspirants must be given a level playing ground to compete.

Adamu’s adoption of Lawan as consensus is against the position of 11 APC northern Governors, who endorsed that power must shift to the South after President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure.

The APC Chairman told the National Working Committee that he arrived at the choice of Lawan after consultation with President Buhari.
