Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma has declared that many factors will be considered before deciding on who will emerge as the 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress.
The Governor expressed his opinion when he was asked about the probability of the APC zoning its 2023 presidential ticket to the southeast.
He said apart from just the zoning consideration, the APC has to give its ticket to someone capable of winning elections.
Governor Uzodinma added that the party would have to take a decision on its eventual presidential candidate after considering both covert and overt factors.
“This ticket is not an airline ticket. We are talking about having a presidential candidate. It is a decision of the party. It has to be a collective decision,” he stated during a Channels TV interview on Monday.
“Nobody will get the presidential ticket because he spoke good English on the television. Nobody will get the presidential ticket because he was abusing people on television. It is a decision of the party and many factors will be responsible — covert and overt factors — because at the end of the day, the ticket will be given to a name that can win the election. Winnability is the name,” he added.
Earlier, Best News Network reported that Governor Uzodinma has made light of the current leadership crisis rocking the APC at the National level.
According to him, there is nothing to worry about as Mai Mala Buni remains the authentic APC Caretaker chairman and he would soon be back to reclaim his seat.
