APC National Chairman Adamu made the announcement at the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja.

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman reportedly announced the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan as the party’s consensus candidate.

This came following President Muhammadu Buhari’s call for a consensus candidate.

President Buhari ahead of the party’s presidential primaries, had on Saturday night had a meeting with presidential aspirants from southern Nigeria.

In a statement credited to Buhari’s media aide, Femi Adesina, the president had adviced the aspirants to come up with a consensus candidate ahead of the party’s primary slated to hold this week at the Eagles Square, Abuja.

“Without prejudice to your qualifications, I urge all of you to hold consultations amongst yourselves and with the party, with a view to building a consensus in a manner that would help the party reduce the number of aspirants, bring up a formidable candidate and scale down the anxiety of party members,” the president was quoted to have said.

The president’s advice came on the heels of the decision of Northern governors of APC, who had asked him to pick a southerner as his successor.

In a twist of events, on Monday, June 6, 2022, the party Chairman, Adamu announced Senate President Ahmed Lawan as the party’s consensus candidate.



According to reports from TheNation, the Party Chairman announced this at the meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) in Abuja.
