Presidential Candidate: APC Governors Meeting Deadlocked After Buhari’s Stance by powerfulguy: 6:32pm On May 31, 2022
A meeting the APC governors held Tuesday evening to discuss the stance of President Muhammadu Buhari on the party’s presidential candidate ended in a deadlock, PREMIUM TIMES had learnt.

The meeting was held in Abuja, minutes after the APC governors had a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

The governors meeting is to reconvene at 8 p.m., one of them told this newspaper.

At the meeting with the president, Mr Buhari told the governors that he would like to pick his successor and wants the governors to support him to do so.

The president left for Spain immediately after his meeting with the governors.

Governors Meeting
At their own meeting, one of the governors told PREMIUM TIMES, members could not agree on how to implement the president’s request.

We believe the president has not settled for any particular person and that is why some governors felt the best thing to do was to nominate two of us (one each from the north and south) to the president for consideration, the source said.

The source said many northern governors, however, argued that no southern governor could defeat Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate, in the presidential election; so the north should be given preference.

This angered some southern governors.

Some of the southern governors also argued that the nominees do not have to be state governors. This position is believed to have been pushed by governors loyal to some southern presidential candidates such as Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and ex-Lagos governor Bola Tinubu.

Since the governors could not agree, they resolved to end the meeting and reconvene at 8 p.m.

Buhari’s Position
PREMIUM TIMES reported how President Muhammadu Buhari told APC governors that he would want to pick his successor and needs the governors to support him to do so.

Mr Buhari said this Tuesday at a meeting with governors elected on the APC platform at the State House, Abuja.

“In keeping with the established internal policies of the Party and as we approach the Convention in a few days, therefore, I wish to solicit the reciprocity and support of the Governors and other stakeholders in picking my successor, who would fly the flag of our party for election into the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in 2023,” the president said at the meeting which was also attended by the APC national chairman.

Mr Buhari told the governors that he realises the ‘compelling need’ for him to provide ‘stronger leadership to the party under this transition process.’

The stronger leadership, Mr Buhari said, is not only to ensure that APCs electoral fortunes improve but also to ensure that the party ‘retains power at the centre’ by winning the presidential election.

The APC holds its presidential primary from June 6 to 8.

At the meeting with the governors, Mr Buhari also stated the factors he would consider in supporting a presidential candidate among the 25 persons seeking to fly the APC flag.

“Our objective must be the victory of our party and our choice of candidate must be someone who would give the Nigerian masses a sense of victory and confidence even before the elections,” he said.

Consensus isn’t going to happen. It is practically impossible for Buhari that’s not been active in leading the party all along to instantly want to lead it at this critical time.

All the Governors are looking to serve there own interest and this rigmarole discussion will continue until weekend when the election nigh with no resolution whatsoever.

Let’s continue to watch and see.

Buhari’s candidate is also likely to fail in the general election VS Atiku, As Nigerians will perceive such individual as a rubber stamped candidate who would continue the disaster the Buhari government brought on Nigerians.

I just laugh

Buhari doesn't need una recommendation, he has tactically shifted the debate from how to go about the "primaries" to who should be the consensus candidate

He already has a candidate since 20bc, he would allow you rumble and then tell you his choice

The North will always be North,
The have thrown the South under the bus again.
Atiku emergence as PDP Presidential Candidate has altered APC permutations,APC had hoped and prayed for a Wike's victory last Saturday, that didn't happen, they never wanted Atiku as PDP Presidential candidate, they will never risk fielding a Southerner against Atiku, it is political suicide for APC.

You people should have conscience for once ... Buhari cannot choose his successor , but all Govs and leaders in various state in all parties are choosing their successors... I may not like Baba Buhari choice , but I will never condemn him cos that's the norm in our politics in Nigeria ...Baba IYABO did it ...

I think this guy has mental disorders.

He solicited reciprocal support from the governors, if he is not mentally unstable, then he will know that the only reciprocal support should be to support Tinubu who helped him (Buhari) to become President after three woeful failed attempt. Anything less than that is not recipocal. He should go and meet the Almajari that told him to use that word to teach him another word to use.

Mind you, we have Plan-B and Plan-C, and we have not hidden that fact. We are ready to fight dirty, and we mean it.

That was his biggest mistake, he clearly saw the hand writing on the wall that Buhari and his Aso Rock cabal disliked him right from Buhari first term in office, but he kept trying to impress them and trust them, but they were always suspicious of Tinubu's personality
He should have decamped to SDP since 2 years ago when Oshiomole his loyalist was removed as APC Chairman
It is too late for him to make any impact if goes to another party, what is sure after he is dumped from the APC Presidential race, he will secretly back Atiku his friend.
