The National Caucus of APC has said there is no vacancy in the presidency come 2019. According to Vanguard, members of the National caucus which comprises of serving and former governors, the National Assembly leadership, and selected members of the national executive of the party, stated this after a meeting with President Buhari on Tuesday March 22nd. A source at the meeting said;
"With Buhari contesting in 2019, those who have been squabbling will now have to queue up behind him and put the interest of the party ahead".
The source added that the issue was brought up as a way of resting restiveness among some party leaders, who have been divided over who will secure the party's presidential ticket come 2019.
The source added that the positioning by different party leaders on 2019 has been blamed for the problems that led to the crisis in the National Assembly and also the inability of the party to inaugurate its Board of Trustees, BoT till date.
