The Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu says the All Progressive Congress (APC) National Chairman, Senator Abdulahi Adamu and National Working Committee (NWC) will formally present the Senate president, Ahmed Lawan to President Muhammadu Buhari as the party’s consensus candidate for next year’s presidential election.
Senator Kalu dropped the hint on his verified Facebook page.
He described Lawan as the most qualified and suitable candidate to fetch APC victory in the election.
According to him, the party “has through a vigorous evaluation of all our able and qualified candidates, decided in the interest of our party and the future wellbeing of millions of Nigerians who look to our party for continuous leadership, decided that Senator Ahmed Lawan is the strongest and most suitable candidate to be the flag bearer of our party in the upcoming Presidential election.
The National Chairman and NWC of our party will present Senator Ahmed Lawan to the president of the Federation Republic of Nigeria for his endorsement”.
Senator Kalu had before now been asking that the party zoned its presidential flagbearer to the north and openly supported Lawan over all other aspirants.
