According to the news media, APC members have been gathering since Tuesday to vote in important primaries to choose a candidate to replace President Muhammadu Buhari in next year’s election (retd.).
APC Primary Election Result
The APC delegates were to choose a candidate to run against Atiku Abubakar, 75, of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, and others in the presidential election on February 25.
Buhari, who is standing down after serving the maximum two terms permitted by the constitution, had spent the days running up to the convention in talks with APC leaders, attempting to reach a consensus on a candidate.
“What we do here will determine the fate of the party,” said APC party chairman Abdullahi Adamu, reiterating Buhari’s demand for unity within the ranks.
“We can’t go into next year’s general election without putting our house in order.”
Part of the APC’s candidate debate revolves around “zoning,” an unspoken agreement among political elites that the president of Nigeria should rotate between those from the primarily Christian south and those from the predominantly Muslim north.
Following Buhari’s victory in the north, commentators predicted that the presidency would go to a candidate from the south.
However, Abubakar, a former vice president and political stalwart who is a northern Muslim, was chosen by the PDP, which had its primary on May 28 and 29.
The opposition’s decision to ignore “zoning” has caused the APC to rethink how its candidate will appeal to voters in the north, where turnout and involvement have historically been greater.
Buhari, the ruling party’s leader, did not declare support for any candidate, instead directing APC members to “let the delegates decide.”
“Our goal must be the success of our party, and our candidate must be someone who will instill a sense of victory and confidence in the Nigerian people even before the polls,” he stated last week.
Hundreds of APC supporters dressed in party colors of green, white, and red gathered in and around the location early Tuesday, prompting heavy security deployment in central Abuja.
