The national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, in his reaction to a statement made by Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state, “stating that 34 governors have already endorsed Buhari for a second term”.
There is nothing like an automatic ticket for President Muhammadu Buhari for the 2019 election because right now the party has not endorsed nor projected anyone as her candidate for 2019.
At Akure, Ondo State, on Wednesday, November 22, 2017, the APC leader said it is not in the office of governors to endorse anyone; it is not in their power.
He added that the party’s flag bearer has always emerged through a democratic process, it thus implies that the 2019 presidential election will follow suit.
Constitutional provision must be followed and an individual or group’s opinion does not really matter at this stage, Buhari will want a normal process because he believes and knows the process.
He ended by letting the public know that Buhari has not disclosed his intention about 2019, but his supporters have been agitating for his re-election.
