The leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and fromer Lagos state Governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has disclosed that the APC will not issue any automatic ticket to any candidate and will follow due democratic process in selecting its presidential candidate for the 2019 general elections.
Tinubu made this known on Wednesday, November 22 after his meeting with leaders of the pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, the Afenifere, at the home of the leader of the organisation, Pa. Reuben Fasoranti in Akure, Ondo State, the Punch reports.
In attendance at the meeting were Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, his deputy, Mr. Agboola Ajayi and acting chairman of the APC in the state, Mr. Ade Ademehin.
Tinubu said: �No governors can appropriate the power of endorsement to themselves. Buhari is a believer in the process. The Buhari, I know, believes in the rule of law. We wanted him even before the last convention and primary of the party and Akeredolu is here standing with me, he was not the governor then. He was one of the leading delegates that voted properly and Buhari was a clear winner.
�We followed all the constitutional provision and an individual or group’s opinion does not really matter at this stage, Buhari will want a normal process. Buhari that, I know, who says he will lose at any convention? But if the national body, the NEC (National Executive Committee) and all of us as members endorsed him as our single candidate, we will not be violating INEC regulations, we will not be violating our party constitution.
�What you are hearing is just a campaign by other people who might like to do so. Buhari has not excluded anybody, and he has not infringed on anybody’s ambition if there is. We cannot be sycophantic about it.”
