former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said the Northern APC governors cannot zone or impose a candidate on party members.
Fani-Kayode noted that President Muhammadu Buhari, APC chairman Abdullahi Adamu, the National Working Committee (NWC), and delegates will decide who to become the Party’s candidate ahead of the 2023 general election.
In his tweet, he said that: “It is not for the Northern Governors to singlehandedly zone or determine the Presidential candidate of our party.
“It is for the President, the National Chairman, the NWC & the delegates to decide.
“A challenge to the authority of the Chairman & supremacy of the party is unacceptable.”
TheNewsGuru reports that the Northern APC Governors forwarded the names of five southern aspirants to President Muhammadu Buhari from which consideration should be made for a consensus candidate.
