Pioneer Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress and a former Governor of Osun State, Bisi Akande has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to inform South-west leaders of the party that he would re-contest in 2019.
Akande on Thursday, October 12, in Ibadan, also said that Buhari will have to contest with other members interested in the slot to secure the party’s nod.
He spoke at the meeting of the APC South-west leaders at the executive chambers of the Oyo State governor’s office in Ibadan.
Akandi also spoke with journalists on national issues at the end of the deliberations.
Responding to a question on whether the party would support the president’s re-election, he said the decision ”will be taken at the appropriate time and that the president hasn’t said anything about a re-run.”
“He has not told us that he is contesting again. Anybody in our party is free to become the President of Nigeria. As soon as they indicate interest, we will set a process through which a candidate is elected. If he (Buhari) is lucky to have the ticket, we will present him as our candidate.”
