Why APC delegates rejected $50,000

THE members of the All Progressives Congress Congress (APC) National Working Committee (NWC) allegedly rejected an offer of $50,000 made to each of them to accept Senate President Ahmad Lawan, as the party’s consensus presidential candidate for the 2023 general election.


APC national chairman, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu had called a meeting of NWC by 1:00pm, on Monday, in Abuja.
Sources privy to the meeting said that the APC Chairman told the Party’s NWC members that President Muhammadu Buhari had endorsed Ahmed Lawan as the presidential candidate of the party.


The NWC members summarily opposed the decision, saying it could not have been true given what the Northern Governors had said that power should shift to the south and the response of the southern governors in that regard.


In reaction to that also the NWC members said that given what President Buhari had said in respect of the positions of both northern and southern governors it could be a mere case of name dropping of the president.


The 22 APC governors from northern and southern regions of the country were said to have also opposed the move as it’s against their position on the emergence of a presidential candidate.


The 11 Northern APC Governors had on Saturday night after their meeting, issued a statement declaring their resolution that the party should be zoned its selection of the presidential candidate for the 2023 election to the south.


President Buhari has, however, distanced himself from the said endorsement, declaring that he has anointed no one and there shall be no imposition of candidate on the party members
