APC Chairman, Adamu Reveals When Party Will Zone Presidency

Senator Abdullahi Adamu, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said that the party would take a decision on zoning after screening its 2023 presidential aspirants.

Adamu said that the presidential aspirants would be scrutinised in accordance with the party’s guidelines for the 2023 general elections.

Indications has it that the party’s electoral guidelines provide three methods of choosing its candidates for an election, which include: direct, indirect, and consensus.

Speaking on the party’s zoning arrangement, Adamu said that no decision would be taken until its aspirants were all screened.

We are yet to produced our candidate for the presidency, we have to screen the aspirants to know the way forward.

We have aspirants from across the country in the presidential race. We will take the decision when we get there,” the APC national chairman said.

We have 28 aspirants for the presidential ticket, and everybody knows that all of them cannot get the ticket. If it’s God’s wish, they all can even be president of the country one after the other.

Our goal is to ensure justice in the choice of who emerges as the candidate of the party, that does not mean we are perfect, but we pray we do the right thing,” he said.

On the possibility of the party adopting the type of consensus arrangement that produced him as its chairman, Adamu said the chairmanship position was not the same as that of the president.

He stressed that there was no comparison between the two positions.

However, the party has laid down its rules and regulations for the aspirants, we would scrutinise all of them based on our guidelines to be sure we pick the right candidate for the party,” he said.

He debunked insinuations that a large number of the party’s presidential aspirants was a subtle ploy to extend the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari in office.

I can only say that God will deal with those behind such insinuations. President Buhari had since 2019 declared that he would not seek a tenure extension.

He told everybody and swore with the Qur’an that he would not breach constitutional provision on his two terms tenure.
While performing the Lesser Hajj,the President reiterated his position.

If there is truth in such talks, none of the aspirants would have procured the party’s Expression of Interest and Nomination forms,” he said.
