Nigeria: Buhari Our Consensus Candidate - APC Reps

APC members of the House of Representative have chosen President Buhari as their consensus candidate. This position was made known to the media after the APC caucus met at the National Assembly yesterday.

Making this announcement, Hon Sulaimon Lasun Yussuff, Deputy speaker of the House said “So, as at today, the party in principle has agreed that Buhari is going to be our candidate in 2019; I said in principle because when the date of the primary is now finally announced, we just want to go there to approve Buhari as a consensus candidate.

“As long as my colleagues and I standing before you this evening are members of APC, nobody can represent us and represent Buhari more than us; all of us are for Buhari. I as an individual started campaigning for Buhari even before we merged as far back as January 2014.”

Hon Lasun also condemned the action of the DSS at the National Assembly saying “We are here today to let the public know that APC as a caucus condemns what happened a few days ago and also to commend the government for the action taken on the director general of the DSS.”

On the issue of which party now had the majority in both houses, he said “We are all aware that since June 2015 the APC is in the majority in both Chambers, both in the House of Representatives and the Senate and by the grace of God, we are still enjoying that position.

“One of the reasons you see us this afternoon is to tell the public once again that APC in the House of Representatives is still in the majority and as a caucus we are one and we are with our president, Buhari.

“Whatever is happening within the House of Representatives can only be represented by the APC caucus of the House. What we know is that in a system that is well fortified like we are fortified in terms of majority, in terms of the calibre of people that are members of APC and the House of Representatives, no other group can represent us better.

“So, what we know as the House of Representatives All Progressives Congress caucus is that no other group can represent our objectives than what we have come here to say.”
