Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) got it all wrong on its assumption that President Muhammadu Buhari has a self-succession plan, the All Progressives Congress (APC), said last night.
Debunking allegations that it has a plan to return President Muhammadu Buhari to the ballot in 2023, the ruling party said it has no third term agenda like PDP.
Secretary to the APC Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Senator John James Akpanudoehede, who reacted to the PDP allegation said, “APC has no 3rd term agenda like the PDP.”
The APC spokesman said: “Unlike the opposition, we are a disciplined party. PDP is just been hunted by its past. You will recall the glorious third term agenda while PDP was in power. So, it is easy to accuse APC now.
“After our (APC) congresses and the National Convention, we will shock them (PDP) by bringing a consensus and an agreeable candidate that will fly the flag of the party come 2023. APC has no 3rdterm agenda like PDP.
“What we are doing now is to stabilize and not to allow individual ambition to derail the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We are a disciplined party and because we cannot allow individual addition to overshadowing what the President is going now.”
