2023: APC Former Presidential Aspirants Shun Scheduled Meeting

Former candidates for the presidency of the All Progressives Congress, or APC, who were supposed to meet on Wednesday in Abuja, did not show up.

According to, the hopefuls were expected to gather on Wednesday by 2:00 p.m. at the Transcorp Hilton to strategize and develop workable plans to back the party’s presidential nominee, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Dr. Nicolas Felix, one of the former candidates, said this in a statement on Monday, adding that the move was made to ensure that the party wins the presidential election in February 2023.

“We will also brainstorm on adopting winning campaign strategies to support our standard-bearer, Bola Tinubu, and seek to carry every Nigerian along in our bid to coast home to victory in the 2023 general elections,” he said.


However, Felix, who is thought to be the youngest of the candidates, announced the meeting’s postponement a few hours before it began, indicating that a new date would be revealed.

“Please be informed that the strategic meeting of 2023 Presidential Aspirants of the All Progressives Congress, scheduled to hold on Wednesday the 31st of August has been postponed,” he said.

He was unable to explain the sudden postponement, though.

However, a party insider with knowledge of the development informed Newsmen that aside from Felix, no other candidate was eager to attend the meeting.

He claimed that the majority of the former candidates were still in disbelief about the former Lagos Governor’s victory in the June 8 primary.

He said, “I can confidently tell you that over 19 of them are not ready to work with Asiwaju to win the 2023 election. How many of them have you seen talking about Tinubu?


“The election didn’t go as expected and some of us are still in shock. Having a strategy to sell our candidate is a major issue.”
