President Muhammadu Buhari is an unpredictable person and may surprise Nigerians with his choice of candidate for the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential ticket, Senator Rochas Okorocha said on Tuesday.
Okorocha, who is one of the presidential aspirants seeking the ruling party’s 2023 presidential election’s ticket, spoke on Channels TV’s Politics Today, while commenting on the battle for the APC ticket.
The former Imo State governor, who currently represents Imo West at the Senate said, “If you know President Muhammadu Buhari, he is a general and unpredictable. You cannot predict what he will do. He may pull everybody by surprise.
“Buhari is very intelligent as he may decide to consider some factors: he will look at the mood of the nation and see who will actually fit into the mood of the nation; who will win the election for the APC because definitely he doesn’t want to lose his seat to the PDP. So, he will be smart enough to say this person can and that (person) cannot; there will be a lot of consultations.”
Okorocha said that the APC is considering the interest of Nigeria in picking their candidate because the PDP is quietly watching to see if the ruling party would stumble by producing a poor candidate.
