President Buhari not willing to reveal identity of his anointed candidate
Written by News Room on January 6, 2022
Like many of the major political office holders in the country completing their term, it is believed that the President also has a candidate whom he prefers to succeed him.
However, President Muhammadu Buhari is not willing to reveal the identity of his anointed candidate for the safety of such a person.
While responding to a question about who his preferred candidate was during an exclusive interview on national television on Wednesday, he said it is a secret.
President Buhari stated his readiness to sign the Electoral Act Amendment Bill, if the National Assembly would include the options of consensus candidate and indirect primary to the mode of selecting a candidate for an election, as against the initial direct mode as the only option to conduct primaries by political parties.
