Avoid Pressure In Selection Of Your Choice Candidate – Group Urges Buhari

A group under the aegis of Movement For Better Nigeria, MFBN, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to be discrete and not to succumb to pressure in choosing his preferred candidate for the All Progressives Congress presidential primary election which will be held between June 6-8.

President Buhari should choose a candidate with capacity and charisma that would overshadow the presidential flag bearer of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP at the 2023 general elections.

Dr Paul Dowells,Coordinator of the group stated this on Saturday during a press conference in Abuja.

He said whichever way the party chooses to use to nominate its candidate, the process should be free and fair and not to be based on who shares more money to delegates at the venue.

Dowells, who expressed confidence in President Buhari’s sense of judgement, said he should not be overwhelmed by pressure from some quarters rather focus on an individual that would take Nigeria to a higher height even as he explained that his Vice, Prof Yemi Osinbajo fits into that category.

He, therefore, warned that failure of Mr President to heed to their plea will leave them with no option than to withdraw their support from the APC.

The statement in parts, “As the call for President Muhammadu Buhari to name his preferred successor after 2023 intensifies; we, members of Movement For Better Nigeria, MFBN wish to state in clear terms that a tested and trusted man of charisma should be considered.

We all know that the succession plan of every administration is as important as the administration itself, therefore as a group, poised to see a better Nigeria and ensure the sustainability of the giant strides of president Buhari led administration, we call on Mr President not to yield to pressure from some quarters to choose a candidate who does not have the capacity to lead the nation to its desired destination or choose out of sentiments.

We want Mr President to ensure that whichever way the party chooses to nominate its candidate either through consensus or direct primaries; nobody should be allowed to use money and resources to mesmerize the delegates which abet the corruption that his administration is known to fight against. The primaries should be free, fair and credible.

We are confident of the president’s sagacity and sense of judgement and for the APC to sustain its power, it MUST field a credible and refined candidate who will be able to contend with the opposition PDP and ensure that victory is obtained.”
