APC Begins Process To Pick Presidential Candidate October by omenka(m): 8:18am On Aug 22, 2014

Nigeria’s main opposition party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has fixed October for the commencement of its primary elections that would culminate in the nomination of its presidential candidate for the 2015 general election.

It also demanded a temporary lifting of the curfew currently in place in Adamawa State in the preparation for the October 11 governorship election in the state.

These are some of the resolutions taken at the party’s National Executive committee meeting in Abuja on Thursday.

The APC spokesperson, Lai Mohammed, said after the meeting that the NEC approved the use of the modified direct primaries for picking the party’s presidential candidate in subsequent elections.

Among members of the party believed to be eyeing the presidency are former military Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and governor of Kano State, Rabi’u Kwankwaso.

Mr. Mohammed said the party demanded the lifting of the curfew in Adamawa state to ensure mass participation in the election.

He never was in the race.

They zoned it to the north and the vice Presidential slot to the south.

Sai Buhari. Atiku shouldn't waste his time and resources because nobody would wanna vote for him. How can we say PDP has failed us for 16yrs and at the end we would still field somebody from that party as our Presidential Candidate?! It ain't done. Wetin we go even yearn for campaign sef?!

APC didn't zone it to the North. I have never heard that they barred Southerners from aspiring. However, APC is not like PDP that plays politics of region, tribe and religion. PDP don't even keep to their zoning arrangement(that is their business). In APC everyone can aspire for any position without restriction.

Some people were commenting of long years of government dominance by the northerners and its negetive effects on the developement of the country. Once they hijack the presidency through Apc which i know wont be possible, they will then restrategize on how to sit tight. Southerners them have to forget about becoming president. All the manipulations in the military, the binged of Sanusi as the CBN governor, etc are all avenues to ensure that they continue using officer to manipulate the government. I was surprised to hear that Nigeria is a member of Organisation Of Islamic Countries. With APC party structure, maybe, this time around, they will contest Nigeria to Syria and Iraq where Islam is a must. We have to be wise.

APC is going to scatter by internal crisis after the october primaries. The political sagacity of Atiku will put perpetual cry baby Buhari into political hades and oblivion. Then and only then will they though in a pathetic fashion be able to challenge the unmitigated might of the PDP. You really cant defeat a party whose mass appeal is at the grassroot instead of cyberspace

Guy, I've known you for long to be an aficionado of Atiku. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't reason well. I also believe most of you are afraid of Buhari, that's the main reason you want APC to field Atiku.

Have you ever gone online to search how Presidential Elections have been in Nigeria. Buhari had 17% of the total votes cast in 2007, while Atiku had only 7%, despite Buhari coming from the same state with the Late Pres. Yaradua. What about the 2011 Election in which Atiku lost his Primaries to Jonadaf.t?! Try and reason well my guy.

I believe you only want Atiku to win the Primaries not because you like him, nor because he's stronger; but because you know that's the only person GEJ can win hands down come February 14.

And for you to say APC would scatter of internal crisis after the Presidential Primaries, should Atiku ain't chosen shows that you are living in denial. Atiku that doesn't even have control of his state. He can't even deliver there for APC. So, how's APC gonna scatter?! Atiku is levelless as far as APC is concerned!

Dont mind the Apostle of Doom and the Evangelist of Bad tiding.....

Have you forgotten since when they kept saying APC will scatter before it will be formed,it got formed

The children of sorrow propelled by their grandfathers in the inner coven of PDP and GEJ devised several means to scuttle APC's growth and development yet they have been grossly disappointed at every turn around the corner

APC did their National Convention to elect Excos......the same town criers spammed the cyberspace with divinations of cataclysm yet APC have weathered the storm......infact Tom ikimi who authored a lamentation epistle in the aftermath of the elections have just been named as one of the BOT members

Those who wish Nigeria well will be happy at the coming of APC which will put PDP on its toes and eventually the common man will be the better for it because they will tango effectively against each other to the benefit of the Nigerian masses

If he had mentioned Kwankwaso, I wouldn't have bothered “much”, but Atiku?! They all said APC wouldn't be registered as a Party, but today, the story has changed to APC would scatter if Atiku does not win its Presidential Primaries. They're all bunch of Hypocrites!

i dey laugh. There's no need to engage you in insultive rants the way you want, you have already exposed your level of reasoning. The same man you claim has no "level" in his state is the one APC made a member of their board of trustees, its either you know something your party leaders dont know or your party leaders are daft for according him such respectable position. I still dey laugh you sha because even YOU know that the ONLY nationwide marketable northern candidate the APC has is Atiku. Next time dont ever insinuate that im afraid of Buhari, thats a stvpid thought
