Just In : Adamu announces Lawan as APC consensus candidate.
Adamu never prepared for Presidency. He has no solution to the current insecurity and economic problems bc he never planned for it.
Majority of the NWC members disagreed, so all the 23 aspirants will go for primary tomorrow Tuesday.
Buhari called the Northern APC Governors to support Lawan but majority of them said that they have committed themselves and they are men of honour. They in turn told the President that his successor must come from the South. They submitted a memo with their signatures. GYB walked out in anger.
* Adamu announces Lawan as a consensus candidate
Crisis has hit the All Progressives Congress (APC) following the announcement of Senate President Ahmed Lawan as a consensus presidential aspirant by the national chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu.
Adamu made the announcement at the meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) on Monday in Abuja.
Other aspirants including Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; Dr. Kayode Fayemi and David Umahi, among others will, however, be allowed to contest the primary at the convention holding tomorrow at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
The NWC members insisted other aspirants must be given a level playing ground to compete.
Adamu’s adoption of Lawan as a consensus candidate is against the position of 11 APC northern Governors, who endorsed that power must shift to the South after President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure.
Adamu told the National Working Committee that he arrived at the choice of Lawan after consultation with President Buhari.
