Senator John Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary, APC Caretaker, and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), stated this in an Abuja statement on Thursday.
Mr. Akpanudoedehe had previously stated that the party will choose a consensual and agreeable presidential candidate to run for the presidency in 2023, in response to the PDP’s claim that Buhari had a succession plan.
He said it was sad that the APC’s earlier statement, which refuted the PDP’s bogus claim, was twisted and misinterpreted in some parts of the media.
“Our statement is simple and straightforward. President Buhari has no third term ambition, a position he has personally reiterated.
“In adherence to internal democracy, when the time comes to elect the APC 2023 presidential flag bearer and other party candidates, the process will be in full compliance with the provisions of the 1999 amended Nigerian Constitution, the APC Constitution and the approved party guidelines.
“For clarity, the APC Constitution provides that party candidates in all elections emerge through democratically conducted primary elections or where possible, consensus,” he said.
He went on to say that the erroneous readings of the party’s earlier statement were part of a plot aimed at senior APC leaders and their alleged presidential ambitions in 2023.
Mr Akpanudoedehe said this was needless and inappropriate, emphasizing that the APC leadership would not force any candidate in the run-up to the congresses, National Convention, and General Elections in 2023.
