The Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule on Tuesday revealed hat President Muhammadu Buhari told Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress the attributes of his preferred candidate.
Sule made this known during an interview on Channels TV on Tuesday, stating that: “The president said that our consensus candidate or the candidate to be selected must be acceptable to Nigerians, somebody who understands what the APC is all about and is after.
“He mentioned clearly that the person must be able to go to all the parts of the country and be accepted. Similar to what President Buhari has said, we must bring someone that can win elections and be able to sustain all the good things that the APC has done.
“But if you are looking for a name the president didn’t mention that. He gave the attributes and allowed us to think of the right person in these few days while he is away in Spain. When he comes back everybody can say we have thought about it.”
Sule further posited that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is not just contesting against the APC’s presidential candidate but also the party as a whole.
He added, “He has more work to do because he has to convince people that he is better than our candidate and APC.”
