Ahead of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential primary, leaders of the party in the South West are set to meet with presidential hopefuls from the zone over the party’s presidential ticket.
It was gathered that the crucial meeting will take place on Friday at the Lagos State Government House in Marina.
The meeting will be chaired by the interim National Chairman of the APC and former Governor of Osun State, Chief Bisi Akande.
Also, the meeting will be attended by a former Governor of Ogun State, Chief Olusegun Osoba, party stakeholders, and other critical APC leaders in the South West.
It was gathered that APC leaders in the region are worried over the number of aspirants that have emerged to contest the party’s presidential ticket and vie for the 2023 presidency.
In order to save the South West from losing the ticket, it is understood that the APC leaders called the meeting to work out a way to cut down the number of presidential hopefuls from the zone.
The APC leaders are also concerned about the possible outcome because of the bad blood the ambition of the leading contenders for the APC ticket has already generated.
