Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has stated that the party's presidential candidate will only be determined by God ahead of the 2023 election.
The APC chair said that while party members aspire for the APC ticket, it was in God's hands to make the final decision on who the winner would be.
Speaking during an interview with the Voice of America, Hausa Service, Adamu noted that the leadership of the APC will adhere to the guidelines in deciding the party’s presidential candidate from the 28 presidential aspirants.
"You can’t stop our party stalwarts from contesting elections or aspiring for the presidency. It is their right and we are happy for them.
"There is nothing wrong for anybody aspiring for the exalted seat of the presidency.
"It is God that decides who gets what. Once God makes up his mind and says this is who He wants, that is what we are praying for.
"We have 28 aspirants for the presidential ticket and everybody knows that all of them cannot get the ticket.
"If it’s God’s wish, they all can even be president of the country one after the other. Ours is to ensure justice in the choice of who emerges as the candidate of the party.
"That does not mean we are perfect. But we pray we do the right thing", he said.
