President Muhammadu Buhari is confident his successor would be the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) candidate in the 2023 presidential election.

The president told the party’s caucus at a meeting in Abuja late Sunday that “We are on the way towards winning our third straight victory since 2015.”

The president’s meeting came barely 24 hours after meeting with the presidential aspirants of the party.

The president appraised the series of consultations held so far towards getting a presidential candidate for the APC.

“I am optimistic that the outcome of this consultation with the National Advisory Council will in addition to sharpening our focus, help to fortify the positive democratic principles, practices, and culture that already exists within the party system,” President Buhari said.

“In the course of these consultative processes, I have already met separately with the Progressive Governors and with all our eminent members who are aspiring to become the Presidential flag bearer for our party during the 2023 elections.

“I am pleased to inform you that those meetings have been fruitful and indicative of a party that is prepared and marching towards a third straight victory since 2015, at the presidential polls.

A statement from Femi Adesina, Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity said the President harped on consensus building at the meeting.

Speaking about his meetings with APC Governors and the party’s presidential aspirants, President Buhari noted that he Underscored the important roles consensus building and consultation have played in the survival of successful political parties around the world.”

“Recognizing the foregoing, therefore, I also emphasized the need to strengthen our unity, stabilize our internal cohesion and system as well as present a formidable Presidential candidate who has the ability to build a unified nation and the capacity to deal with our challenges,” the President said.

He believes this would prevent post-convention acrimonies and reduce anxiety.

The APC Special National Convention for Presidential Primary is taking place June 6 – 8 at Eagle Square, Abuja.
