Recall that in anuary, Buhari said the name of his preferred presidential candidate would remain a secret.
Speaking on Wednesday in an interview with Channels Television, Okorocha, a presidential hopeful of the All Progressives Congress (APC), stated that the president is “unpredictable”, and that Buhari has not revealed his favourite presidential pick.
He stated that Buhari will consider certain factors before he endorses any politician for the 2023 presidency.
“But if you know President Muhammadu Buhari, he is a general. You can’t predict him. He is so unpredictable that you cannot predict what he will do. He might pull anybody by surprise anytime,” he said.
“That gives him the military training that he has. Anybody (referring to presidential hopefuls) that meets him, whatever he says to A, the same thing he will say to B.
“If anybody comes out to say, Buhari has endorsed him, the person will not be saying the truth. The president may have his preferred candidate in his chest. He has not made that known to anybody.
“The President Buhari, I know, will want to check the mood of the nation. He will also consider the interest of the people.
“He will also consider who can win the election for the party. President Buhari in making his decision will be guided by so many issues that he he has to consider.”
