The All-progressives Congress (APC) has, again, ruled out a third term ticket for President Muhammadu Buhari at the expiration of his tenure in 2023.
The Secretary, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the party, Senator John Akpanudoehede, gave the reassurance while reacting to the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) allegation that Buhari had a “self-succession” plan.
He said: “Unlike the opposition, we are a disciplined party. PDP is just being haunted by its past. You will recall the inglorious third-term agenda while PDP was in power. So, it is easy to accuse APC now.
“After our (APC) congresses and the national convention, we will shock them (PDP) by bringing a consensus and an agreeable candidate that will fly the flag of the party come 2023. APC has no third-term agenda like the PDP.
“What we are doing now is to stabilise the party and not allow individual ambitions to derail the administration of President Buhari.”
IN a related development, the National Women Leader/Representative in the CECPC, Stella Okotete and former Minister of Women Affairs, Iyom Josephine Anenih, and other stakeholders have canvassed for women to occupy the Presidency and key elective positions in 2023.
