Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) met with President Muhammadu Buhari earlier yesterday ahead of the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party slated for today (Wednesday)in Abuja.

This is just as the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party led by Senator Abdullahi Adamu also met Tuesday to prepare the agenda for the NEC meeting that will be attended by all governors, members of the National Assembly, former governors, state chairmen, and other relevant party stakeholders.

It was gathered that the NWC has already adopted the indirect form of primaries for electing its presidential candidate and other flag bearers for various offices in the 2023 general elections.

A source within the NWC informed that they decided to go against the consensus arrangement that was used to pick the party leaders at the convention last month, asking all aspirants to test their popularity on the field.

There had been speculation that the party would adopt a consensus arrangement to choose its presidential candidate just like it did during the last party convention where most party positions were filled through consensus.

Some of the presidential aspirants who are posturing as the anointed candidate of President Buhari have been canvassing for the use of consensus arrangement using their foot soldiers to push the agenda.
