While speaking with newsmen in Lagos on Friday, spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bolaji Abdullahi, spoke on the recent endorsements of President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term.
The ruling party’s spokesman also commented on the reported re-appointment of Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Chibuike Amechi as the Director General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation.
Bolaji said the President has yet to inform the party of his intention to run for a second term, adding that being its leader, the party would support him when and if he does.
He said; “The APC is not involved in Amechi’s appointment as DG of the Buhari Campaign organisation because it is at the level of aspirant.
“His appointment has nothing to do with the APC and the emergence of our candidate for the 2019 presidential election.
“The President would have become the candidate of the party before it can get involved with its campaign.
“It will be wrong for the party to be involved because it will undermine its credibility to other aspirants for the presidential ticket,” he said.
Abdullahi said that the APC constitution has laid down procedures for the emergence of candidates, which the party would strictly adhere to.
“We will ensure that we obey our constitution as far as the selection of candidates is concerned,” he said.
