President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the All Progressives Congress, APC, will decide who succeeds him as president and not himself.
He said this on Thursday while fielding questions from journalists of Arise TV during an exclusive interview.
The President said, “About succession, what this administration can do is to make sure APC lasts beyond this administration.
“We have started registration from ward to local government and to the state level. That way, the APC can know the number of members they have state by state and local government by local government so that by the time this administration goes, the legacy can continue.
“And that is the best way to go for the party and for the country.”
He also rebuffed claims that joining APC automatically exonerated corrupt leaders from any lingering charges or investigations, saying that those who hold such views are not being fair to his regime.
