Presidency: Ayade States Condition To Accept APC’s Consensus Candidate
Governor of Cross River State, Ben Ayade has explained that there must be detailed reasons before he can accept a decision on a consensus candidate for the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Ayade, who is also APC’s presidential aspirant stated this while speaking on Channels Television on Tuesday.
He insisted that there must be a cogent reason to back up any consensus arrangement.
According to him: “In a scenario where the party creates very classical elucidations of the basis and selection criteria that I find completely adequate, I will have no objection,”
“If they narrow down to somebody on the consensus basis and I don’t happen to be the one, I need to understand the selection criteria to explain how they arrived at Mr A and not B. If I feel that is a fair process, of course, I will yield to the supremacy of the party.
“I am a team player and I don’t have any qualms with that. But I must see that it is fair and transparent. I know that capacity will be one of the key factors in consideration,”
