The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has stated that a consensual and agreeable presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections will be announced soon.
Senator John Akpanudoehede, National Secretary, APC Caretaker, and Chairman of the Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), said this in an Abuja statement on Tuesday.
The comment was made in response to a recent claim by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 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.
