The All Progressives Congress, APC, has stated that the National Leader of the ruling party, Bola Tinubu, will not automatically get its 2023 Presidential ticket, despite officially informing President Muhammadu Buhari of his intentions, on Monday, at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, in Abuja, Page 36 learnt.
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena, made the APC’s position known while reacting to the unofficial public declaration of Tinubu’s intention to run for the 2023 Presidency.
He stated: “The APC will not give any of its members’ Presidential ticket on a platter of gold; there are procedures, so he (Tinubu) should continue consulting. The APC is not a come-and-take party. He should consult even those contesting with him.
“So, consultations should continue, and whoever emerges at the primaries, will be the party’s Presidential Candidate for 2023.”
