No automatic ticket for Buhari, Governors – APC

Muhammadu Buhari

 

The All Progressives Congress(APC) said on Thursday there is no automatic ticket for president Muhammadu Buhari, Governors and others seeking re-election in 2019.

The party spokesman Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi said in Abuja the party’s constitution did not provide for such.

“What I can assure you is that the APC will abide by the APC Constitution on such matters and our constitution does not provide for automatic ticket, our constitution does not provide for the right for first refusal. So, our party will abide by the constitution.

“We have looked at what our President has done and as a party we are happy with his achievements; if he comes up today to say he wants to contest, we will support him but to begin to throw things like automatic ticket, right of first refusal, they don’t exist in our constitution,” Abdullahi said.

There have been agitations in some quarters that some  elected officers should be given automatic tickects in 2019.
