2023: APC’ll soon pick consensus presidential candidate, says Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary


The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 general election will emerge by consensus and very soon too, National Secretary, APC Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Senator John Akpanudoedehe has said.

In a statement issued yesterday in Abuja, in apparent reaction to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP’s) recent allegation that President Muhammadu Buhari had a self-succession plan, Akpanudoedehe, however, said the party would not allow individual ambitions to derail the Buhari administration, ahead of the 2023 presidential poll.

He said unlike the opposition PDP, the APC was a disciplined party which had no ugly past to haunt it, unlike the PDP whose past, including the third term agenda of the PDP while it was in power, assuring that “the APC would surprise (the opposition) 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,” Akpanudoedehe surmised.
