APC PRIMARY: Tinubu, Osinbajo, Amaechi, Others Finally Agreed with Buhari on Consensus Candidate

Published 6th June 2022

The last minute Sunday meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, by APC stalwarts revealed that, contrary to naysayers opinion that the meeting will end in deadlock, Governor Yahaya Bello, one of the presidential aspirants of the All progressives Congress (APC), who  has spoken on the resolution of the closed-door talk on June 5, held that he and other presidential hopefuls have agreed to back whoever the president presents as his anointed successor.

Speaking with The Cable, Governor Bello stated:

“Whoever Mr President will come up with, I’m in 100 percent in support of that. It is not only me, in the dinner, we had yesterday with Mr President, almost everybody, in fact, 100 percent of us, who are aspiring, have agreed that whoever Mr President will choose among us we are going to support him.”

As to whether Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu agreed to this, the governor categorically said the APC nation leader was present at the said meeting and did not make any objection whatsoever.

His words:

“He was seated in the meeting and he did not object to it, so If someone speaks on your behalf and you did not have anything in contrary and you keep quiet then it is binding on you.”

Speaking further, Bello noted that the position of the northern APC governors on zoning the presidency to the south is non-binding on him and the party generally.
