Borno state Governor, Babagana Zulum, has admitted that President Muhammadu Buhari will play a huge role in choosing the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Zulum stated this on Sunday, while hosting presidential hopeful, Rotimi Amaechi, in Maiduguri, Borno capital.
The Governor said the APC delegates in the state are waiting for Buhari’s counsel on who to choose as the party’s flag bearer.
He also said the ruling party needs a candidate that would enable the APC to retain power in 2023.
“Borno state delegates will vote based on their conscience. But again, our leader, general Muhammadu Buhari, is very important in this political equation,” he said.
“We are still waiting for him to tell us what to do and we will follow. His advice is very important so we have to wait for his advice.
“Nigerians should pray for a good candidate to emerge, irrespective of tribe, region or ethnic background but a candidate that will ensure the APC forms the central government come 2023.”
