2023: APC to pick consensus presidential candidate

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the ruling party will name a consensus and agreeable presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections soon.

National Secretary, APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Senator John Akpanudoehede, made this known in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja.

The statement was in reaction to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) recent allegation that President Muhammadu Buhari had a self-succession plan.

Akpanudoehede said unlike the opposition PDP, the APC was a disciplined party, noting that the former was just been haunted by its past.

He recalled the third term agenda of the PDP while it was in power, pointing that the APC would surprise it with the outcome of its planned congresses scheduled to commence on July 31.

“After our congresses and the National Convention we will shock them (PDP) by bringing a consensus and an agreeable candidate that will fly the flag of the party come 2023.

“APC has no third term agenda like PDP. What we are doing now is to stabilise the party and not allow individual ambitions to derail President Buhari’s administration ,” he said.
