Why APC delegates should make me presidential candidate, by Tinubu

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar, has urged APC delegates to elect him as the party’s presidential candidate.

If he is given the party’s presidential nomination, he claims he has what it takes to lead the country to a better future.

 

Tinubu told delegates at the APC Presidential convention that he has the requisite experience and connections to lead the country forward.

“I have the experience,” he added. I led Lagos out of the abyss and into its current position as Africa’s fifth largest economy. I’ll put my experience to good use, and it will benefit all Nigerians.

On the power rotation, the NWC supports the APC Northern Governors. 

The ruling All Progressives Congress’s (APC) National Working Committee (NWC) has backed Northern Governors in the party’s power move to the south.

Following a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, Northern Governors urged on a power shift.

This was despite APC National Chairman Senator Abdullahi Adamu announcing Senate President Ahmad Lawan as President Muhammadu Buhari’s chosen aspirant.

Adamu made the news at the party’s NWC meeting in Abuja.

The ruling All Progressives Congress will elect a candidate to represent the party in the presidential election of 2023 today.
Despite the fact that over 20 people had previously purchased N100m registration forms, the race has been reduced to just three participants.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and Rotimi Amaechi are in a three-horse race.

It was reported that Amaechi and Tinubu appeared to have given up on their ambitions and will resign in favour of Osinbajo today.
