The Senator representing Imo West, Rochas Okorocha said that President Muhammadu Buhari may surprise everybody as regards his choice of presidential candidate under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Okorocha Says Buhari is Unpredictable
The former governor, who is seeking the APC presidential ticket to succeed Buhari in 2023, spoke during an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today on Tuesday.
Okorocha claimed that Buhari is “unpredictable”, noting that the president might have a preferred candidate, but he had not made that public.
He said, “But if you know President Muhammadu Buhari, he is a general. You can’t predict him. He is so unpredictable that you cannot predict what he will do. He might pull anybody by surprise anytime,” he said.
“That gives him the military training that he has. Anybody (referring to presidential hopefuls) that meets him, whatever he says to A, the same thing he will say to B.
“If anybody comes out to say, Buhari has endorsed him, the person will not be saying the truth. The president may have his preferred candidate in his chest. He has not made that known to anybody.
“The President Buhari, I know, will want to check the mood of the nation. He will also consider the interest of the people.
“He will also consider who can win the election for the party. President Buhari in making his decision will be guided by so many issues that he has to consider.”
Okoracha said that the party is considering the nation not only the party, as the PDP is quietly watching to see if the APC will stumble by producing a poor candidate.
KanyiDaily recalls that Buhari had said the name of his preferred presidential candidate would remain a secret because the person will be “eliminated” if he mentions his name.
