Presidential primaries: God will decide our candidate – APC chair, Adamu

Abdullahi Adamu, the All Progressives Congress’s National Chairman, has stated that only God will decide the party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 elections.

Party members have the right to run for an APC ticket, according to Adamu, but only God will decide the winner.

During an interview with Voice of America’s Hausa Service, the former governor of Nasarawa State spoke.

He also stated that the APC national leadership will select the party’s presidential candidate from among the 28 candidates according to established guidelines.

Adamu said: “You can’t stop our party stalwarts from contesting elections or aspiring for the presidency. It is their right and we are happy for them. There is nothing wrong for anybody aspiring for the exalted seat of the presidency.

“It is God that decides who gets what. Once God makes up his mind and says this is who He wants, that is what we are praying for. We have 28 aspirants for the presidential ticket and everybody knows that all of them cannot get the ticket.

“If it’s God’s wish, they all can even be president of the country one after the other. Ours is to ensure justice in the choice of who emerges as the candidate of the party. That does not mean we are perfect. But we pray we do the right thing.”

APC has the likes of Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the party; Rotimi Amaechi, former Transportation Minister; Nwajiuba, former Minister of State for Education, Dave Umahi, Governor of Ebonyi State among others, as presidential aspirants.
