Uncertainty, Confusion as APC Decide Presidential Candidate

Uncertainty, Confusion as APC Decide Presidential Candidate

Uncertianty is enveloping the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of its special convention today, following the reported declaration of Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, as consensus aspirant.

The National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, who announced the choice of Lawan at the meeting of the National Working Committee in Abuja, said the decision was taken after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

However, the announcement has deepened the crisis in the party as the governors and the NWC have kicked against the decision. In fact, shortly after the meeting, some members of the NWC staged a walkout.

Briefing newsmen at the party’s national secretariat, the NWC members, also confirmed that though Adamu announced the choice of Lawan’s endorsement by President Buhari, they were not in support.

APC National Organising Secretary, Suleiman Argungu, flanked by other NWC members,  comprising four National Vice chairmen – Salihu Moh Lukman, Isaac Kekemeke, Victor Giadom, among others, insisted that Adamu acted alone.

He further said they were solidly in support of the position of the Northern APC governors that zoned the party’s presidential ticket to the Southern part of the country.
