Adamawa APC Chieftain Supports South West Presidency in 2023

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State, Ahmad Lawan, has called on all APC loyalist in the country to deploy resources and personnel towards the realisation of a 2023 South West presidential candidacy and a subsequent presidential victory for the party.

Lawan, who the current organising secretary of the party said he had already resolved that as part of his core mandate in the pursuit of his ambition for the national secretary of the party, to vigorously canvass for a South West candidacy and to convince members of the political class in the North to shelve any political interest for the presidency for the South West who have sacrificed a lot to ensure Buhari’s presidency.

Speaking with Daily Post in Yola, Adamawa State on the defeat suffered by the party in the governorship poll and other parts of the North in the 2019 elections, Lawan said such situation should even be considered an inordinate ambition for any northerner to attempt to contest for the presidential ticket of the party in 2023 against candidates from South West in view of the immense sacrifice the region made for the progress of the country.

“The loss APC suffered in the North is part of a long-term plan an already thickening high-level plot by some northerners to ensure that power return to the region.

“Some of these politicians worked hard to ensure that APC failed and they are the ones going about saying power must not return to the South West because of their selfish ambition.

“Some significant failures recorded by our party in some states in the North during the 2019 elections, cannot be too far fetched from the plans by some northerners to ensure that power return to the region in 2023.”

He added that “APC’s 2023 presidential ticket belongs to the South West and every APC member interested in the progress of the country should work towards making it a reality.”
