President Muhammadu Buhari is keenly interested in who wins the All Progressives Congress (APC) 2023 presidential ticket.
A source said on Tuesday that the Nigerian leader is favourably disposed to the emergence of Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
The insider was reacting to Monday’s announcement of Lawan as the anointed candidate of the ruling platform.
The declaration by the National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu has caused an uproar in the party.
Some chieftains are furious that Adamu made the pronouncement despite the decision by Northern APC governors to support a Southerner.
In a conversation, our source reminded the party and the public that Adamu was the President’s favourite at the March convention.
He said the chairman could therefore not have singlehandedly taken the position without the Buhari’s knowledge.
“Adamu’s stance is the same as the President. I can tell you that his comment means that Lawan is the President’s choice.
