EXCLUSIVE: APC concedes 2023 presidential ticket to South—by Niyi Salau
Major stakeholders in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have thrown their weight behind power shift to the South after the expiration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure in 2023.
The quest for power shift has been a major contention between the North and the South in the recent time.
Although the decision to concede the presidential ticket of the APC to the South has not been officially announced for strategic reason, The Star has exclusively gathered that consensus has been finally reached among the key stakeholders, especially governors, that special consideration should be given to aspiring candidates from the South in order to ensure equity and fair play.
However, while APC has ultimately laid the matter to rest for now, the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is still dilly-dallying on the final decision to either respect or jettison the zoning arrangement contained in its constitution.
