APC Awaits Buhari’s Clearance To Screen Presidential Aspirants by Lanrelagboi: 7:30am On May 24
The reason for the delay and seeming confusion over the commencement of the screening of presidential aspirants on the platform of the All Progressives Congress has emerged.

The screening of the aspirants has been twice slated and twice cancelled. And there is no known date for the exercise at present.

But WesternPost can now reveal that the delay of the screening is at the instance of the APC National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, who insists he must clear with President Muhammadu Buhari over the matter.

A source quoted the APC chairman as arguing that “since this is at the presidential level, the president’s clearance is imperative.”

The May 23 date for the screening was cancelled before a statement credited to the party’s National Organising Secretary moved the exercise to Tuesday, May 24.

The party, however, denied that the statement came from it without giving a new date since the exercise did not hold on May 23.

Contrary to the impression created by that statement, it has also emerged that Central Bank of Nigeria Governor Godwin Emefiele is clearly out of the APC presidential race. But the participation or otherwise of former president Goodluck Jonathan in the ongoing race remains yet unclear.

Though the former president reportedly shunned the nomination form obtained for him by some persons and the form was allegedly not submitted, he was said to have held some nocturnal meetings with the APC chairman around the close of nomination. A total of 25 aspirants were said to have submitted their forms by the close of nomination.

Meanwhile, the National Working Committee of the APC at its meeting of Monday May 23 approved a revised timetable/schedule of activities for the Governorship, State House of Assembly, Senate and House of Representatives primary elections.

According to a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Barrister Felix Morka, Thursday May 26 has been fixed for the Governorship and State House of Assembly, Friday May 27 for Senate while the House of Representatives primary election holds on Saturday May 28.

The Special Convention for the Presidential Primaries will be held as scheduled on Sunday May 29 and Monday May 30.

Also, First Lady Hajia Aisha Buhari, accompanied by Dolapo, wife of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Minister of Women Affairs Pauline Tallen, paid an unscheduled meeting to the APC secretariat in Abuja.

Mrs. Buhari and her entourage met with the party leaders for about two hours.

Contrary to the impression that she came to press her demand for women inclusion in the list of candidates for elective offices, WP learnt that the First Lady specifically canvassed the need to prune down the number of presidential aspirants. It is not clear what the response from Chairman Abdullahi was

you have conditioned yourself in a false reality that tinubu really matters

So reality would never be believable to you, how do you explain screening is postponed indefinitely when buhari have issued notice of some meeting to reach a defined outcome

Yet the main event is just five days away

They are not supposed to need his approbation or approval. APC is a party, the party chairman and the party itself is bigger than Buhari.
Howbeit it, Tinunu is a desperate, selfish politician with presidential entitlement. He's a disaster that must be stopped.

Buhari has shown that no matter how settled or how much you feel you are this or that secured, a wrong leader with a few wrong policies can wreck you beyond your wildest imaginations...
Your business/career prosperity is largely dependent on your leaders.. ask God for forsight to pick the right one. We have seen what a wrong one can do.....

tinunbu should never in his life smell that seat....

we should all vote massively for a younger president just like peter obi....

peter obi will give Nigerians new fresh hopes.....

i can assure you 100% of that ....

cheers!

Sometimes I wondered if Buhari is out to destroy the APC after using it to realize his ambition of becoming the president.

the First Lady specifically canvassed the need to prune down the number of presidential aspirants.

The first lady went to Secretariat to ask for number of candidate to be reduced, meaning there is already plan that some people would give way wether they like it or not

Don't forget Aisha gives incite into the direction of the president especially with bold moves like this

This is same Aisha that visited amaechi after his coronation
