2023: Buhari has no self succession plan, APC replies PDP

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said President Muhammadu Buhari has no self succession plot.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had accused the president in a statement earlier.

But the APC National Secretary, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), John James Akpanudoedehe, made the clarification through a statement Wednesday in Abuja.

Akpanudoedehe said unlike the erstwhile ruling party under Chief Olusegun Obasanjo who tried to succeed himself, President Buhari has no third term plot.

The APC national secretary maintained that the “APC has no 3rd term agenda like PDP.”

The statement read in part: “Unlike the opposition, we are a disciplined party. PDP is just being haunted by its past. You will recall the inglorious 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 3rd term agenda like PDP.

“What we are doing now is to stabilize the party and not allow individual ambitions to derail the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
