Chose your successors, allow me choose mine, Buhari to APC governors ahead of APC presidential primaries

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked All Progressives Congress (APC) governors to allow him to choose his successor just as they were given a free hand to pick theirs.

In the wake of the coming APC primaries, many persons have shown interest in the number one seat, including ministers, who were made to resign to pursue their political ambition.

Buhari, who met with the APC governors today, had the following to say.

“The Party has successfully established internal policies that promote continuity and smooth succession plans even at the state and local government levels,” Buhari said.

“For example, first term Governors who have served credibly well have encouraged to stand for re-election.

“Similarly, second term Governors have accorded the privilege of promoting successors that are capable of driving their visions and the ideals of the party.

“ I appeal to all of you to allow our interests to converge as we approach the Convention. Our focus should remain on the changing dynamics of our environment, the expectations of our citizens and the global community.

“The party’s objective must be the victory of our party. Our choice of candidate must be someone who would give the Nigerian masses a sense of victory and confidence even before the elections.

“ I wish to solicit the reciprocity and support of the Governors and other stakeholders in picking my successor in the 2023 election.

“I wish to assure you that the consultation process shall continue to ensure that all aspirants and stakeholders be brought on board right through to the convention.

“This also ensure that any anxiety occasioned by different factors is brought under control and that our party emerges stronger.”
