Nasarawa Governor Abdullahi Sule says President Muhammadu Buhari will not consult stakeholders if he wants to impose a presidential candidate on the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Sule was interviewed on Channels Television on Tuesday.

Buhari met with APC governors at the presidential villa on Tuesday.

Buhari told the governors during the meeting that the party’s presidential candidate must be able to connect with Nigerians.

Speaking about what the president told the governors, Sule said Buhari discussed with them about the expected qualities of the party’s presidential candidate.

“The president clearly mentioned that our candidate who will be selected must be someone acceptable to Nigerians — someone who understands what APC is all about and after,” he said.

“He mentioned clearly that it is somebody that would go to all parts of the country and be accepted. We must bring someone who can win the election and sustain what the APC has done. That is the exact definition of what the president said.

“If you are looking for a name, the president didn’t mention a name, and neither did anybody mention a name.

“He told us about his dreams of who will be president. The president said: ‘my dream of who will be the next president is this and I’m going to consult with other stakeholders, not just the governors, the aspirants themselves, and at the end of the day, we must remain a united party’. I think that is just the dream of the president.”
