2023: Buhari Disagrees with APC Chairman on Lawan as Consensus Candidate

The Northern governors of the All the Progressives Congress have said the President Muhammadu Buhari denied anointing any presidential candidate.

The president was said to make this known during a meeting with the Northern governors on Monday.
APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu has announced that Senator Ahmad Lawan, is the party consensus candidate for the primary election.

Speaking on behalf of the governors, Simon Lalong of Plateau State, said the President clarified that he had no consensus candidate for now.

“Mr President was happy with our decision. Mr President believes in a democratic process; and that every candidate must emerge through a transparent process.

“The emphasis Mr President made was that for now, there is no anointed candidate, and therefore directed that the Progressive Governors Forum should meet with the National Working Committee of the party to agree.”
