The All Progressives Congress (APC) Youth Development and Solidarity Forum (YDSF) has warned the Senator Abdullahi Adamu-led National Working Committee (NWC) against fielding an unpopular candidate for the 2023 presidential election.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Tobias Ogbeh, the Coordinator of the APC-YDSF, said the ruling party should not hide under zoning or consensus to make its choice on presidency. The APC youths held a solidarity rally on Thursday.
“As concerned party members, we must come to terms with the issues at stake should an unpopular candidate emerge as the presidential candidate to fly the party’s flag at the presidential election.
“This rally is, therefore, calling on the party under the dynamic leadership of Senator Abdullahi Adamu to, without sentiment, ensure that the most popular candidate emerges as the presidential candidate of the party, as the international community and other concerned stakeholders are keenly watching to see what will become of the APC,” Ogbeh said.
Indications have emerged that the APC might conduct its presidential primaries on Saturday, May 24.
