There will be no vacancy in the Presidency in 2019, members of the National Caucus of the All Progressives Congress, APC, declared on Tuesday night.
The national caucus, comprising serving and former governors, the National Assembly leadership, and selected members of the national executive of the party, at the meeting said the endorsement of President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term would help to stabilise the polity in the face of ‘the 16-year rot’ inherited from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
One of the issues agreed on at the meeting, according to Vanguard, was that President Buhari should be given opportunity to seek a second term. Caucus members, however, said while the idea was good, it would be too early to kick-start a second term campaign for the President.
Vanguard learned that the issue was brought up as a way of resting restiveness among some party leaders, who have been divided over their various aspirations for 2019.
The positioning by different party leaders on 2019 has been blamed for the problems that led to the crisis in the National Assembly and also the inability of the party to inaugurate its Board of Trustees, BoT, till date.
“With Buhari contesting in 2019, those who have been squabbling will now have to queue up behind him and put the interest of the party ahead,” Vanguard quoted a source privy to the development to have said.
