The All Progressives Congress, APC, has refused to automatically endorse its National Leader, Bola Tinubu, as its 2023 Presidential flag bearer.

Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena, made the APC position known while reacting to the public declaration of Bola Tinubu in the 2023 Presidential race.

Reacting to the declaration of Tinubu, Nabena said: “The APC will not give any of its members’ presidential ticket on a platter of gold; there are procedures so he (Tinubu) should continue consulting. The APC is not a come-and-take party. He should consult even those contesting with him.

“So consultations should continue and whoever emerges at the primaries will be the party’s presidential candidate for 2023,” the party said.
