The All Progressives Congress (APC) has responded to the official declaration of interest in the 2023 presidential election by its national leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena, in his response to Tinubu’s declaration said APC is not a come-and-take party.
The former governor of Lagos state had on Monday briefing journalists after his meeting with the president said; “I have informed the President of my ambition but I have not informed Nigerians yet, I am still consulting”.
Reacting, Nabena said; “The APC will not give any of its members’ presidential ticket on a platter of gold; there are procedures so he (Tinubu) should continue consulting.
“The APC is not a come-and-take party. He should consult even those contesting with him.
“So consultations should continue and whoever emerges at the primaries will be the party’s presidential candidate for 2023”.
