According to reports, APC members met to determine the party’s nominee for next year’s election to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
In the presidential election on February 25, Tinubu will face 75-year-old Atiku Abubakar of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, as well as other candidates.
Buhari, who is stepping down after serving the maximum two terms permitted by the constitution, spent the days before up to the convention negotiating with APC officials to find common ground on a nominee.
“The fate of the party depends on what we do here,” APC party chairman Abdullahi Adamu said, echoing Buhari’s call for unity in the ranks.
“We cannot go into the general election next year without putting our house together.”
