As APC governors work hard to dislodge National leaders, Muhammed Buhari and Bola Tinubu who are bent on flying the party’s flag next year, Lagos State governor, Babatunde Fashola has declared that the presidential ticket is open to all.
He added that every party member will be given fair chance to contest the position.
Fashola, a respected member of the party, said this when students of Royal College of Defence Studies in the United Kingdom led by Rear Admiral Jonas Haggren paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
He said, “There is nothing unusual in the emergence of the presidential candidate for APC. It will be an open activity with high level of accountability. I believe everyone who has aspiration will be given fair chance to express and ventilate that aspiration, subject to the rule of politics that we are all aware of, that is, votes, persuasion, lobbying and others. Nothing unusual will happen. There will not be anything done in secret”.
The APC governors have moved to dislodge Buhari and Tinubu following the massive outcry against a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
Fashola, Kwankwaso and Amaechi are funding the project which will lead to the emergence of two governors as Presidential candidate and running mate.
Already, the governors are in the process of taking the party structure during the forthcoming national convention of APC.
