Indications have emerged that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, is working to prevent an internal crisis over who gets its presidential ticket and some other lingering issues.
As 2023 general elections draw closer, it was gathered that the party is working on selecting a consensus arrangement to pick it’s candidate as stalwarts of the APC are already reaching out to members nursing ambition to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari on the need to close ranks.
Top party chieftians have revealed that a crowded presidential primary may breed bad blood and threaten the chances of the party in 2023.
To this end, it was gathered that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is set to meet with the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
One of the sources stated, “Both Ashiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo will soon meet to discuss issues relating to the 2023 election.”
Another source stated, “Leaders of the party are working on adopting a consensus presidential candidate, which has received presidential endorsement.”
The source revealed that Osinbajo had constantly been in touch with Tinubu despite not visiting him in London when he was undergoing medical treatment.
Recall that the Presidential Political Adviser, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, had recently denied reports that there was a crisis between the two leaders.
