The governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have proposed five presidential candidates to run in today’s primaries.
Simon Lilongwe, the Plateau Governor, acknowledged the idea to media in Abuja.
According to him, the decision was made based on the facts on the ground, without prejudice or sentiment.
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Chibuike Amaechi, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, Dave Umahi, and Kayode Fayemi are the five aspirants from the South.
Their names were listed alphabetically, according to Lalong.
Remember that governors in the North who were elected on the APC platform are demanding that the ruling party produce a Southern presidential candidate for the 2023 general election.
