At the All Progress Congress (APC) Convention, some key aspirants have defied the appeal of the President as they refused to step down and accept consensus.
The aspirants vying for various positions including those seeking the office of the national chairman at today’s convention have stood their grounds.
This go against the earlier put forward mandate by the President, Muhammadu Buhari that those who would be voted into offices should emerge by consensus.
One of the aspirants, Saliu Mustapha, said he was still in the race, adding that consensus should be all-inclusive.
Indeed, we recognise consensus as one of APC’s acceptable leadership selection methods, which is completely legal and constitutional. However, we are convinced that for consensus to abide, it must be all-inclusive and devoid of any vestige of imposition.” The statement read.
