2023: We’ll field concensus candidate — APC

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said President Muhammadu Buhari has no third term agenda, adding that the party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections will emerge by consensus.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had alleged that President Buhari has a self-succession plan, but reacting, the Secretary of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee, Sen John James Akpanudoedehe, in a statement yesterday dispelled the claim.

The party said at the appropriate time it would come up with a consensus and agreeable presidential candidate for 2023.

The statement reads in part: “Unlike the opposition, we are a disciplined party. PDP is just being haunted by its past. You will recall the inglorious third term agenda while PDP was in power. So, it is easy to accuse APC now.

“After our (APC) 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 the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
