LAGOS — Senator Gbenga Ashafa, representing Lagos East Senatorial District, has explained that the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, will be chosen in line with the party’s guidelines and the constitution.
He dismissed claims that the choice of a presidential candidate will throw the newly registered party into crisis.
There are insinuations that the party is currently being rocked by internal crisis over who is to be its presidential flagbearer in the 2015 general elections.
It is being alleged that former Head of State, General Muhamudu Buhari (rtd) has been favoured to be the presidential candidate of the party, contrary to the wish of majority in the party.
Addressing leaders and members of the party at the flag-off ceremony of APC, yesterday, at his constituency head office, CMD, Ikosi, Ashafa said that every strategy had been well structured in the new party and there was no basis for confusion or crisis in the party, adding, “APC is intact.”
