President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Apc Governors to reduce the names of presidential aspirants to three.

Recall that the APC governors had earlier submitted the names of five presidential aspirants to the President ahead of the party’s presidential primary slated for Tuesday June 7.

It was learned that the Progressives Governors Forum submitted the five names to the President in the early hours of Tuesday.



The names included on the list are Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, Rotimi Amaechi, former Minister of Transportation, and Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State.

However, according to Imran Muhammad, an APC stalwart, the President directed the governors to reduce the names of the aspirants from five to two or three names.

In a tweet via his Twitter page on Tuesday morning, Muhammad said the President’s reason for the reduction was that the contest would be a straight one between three hopefuls.

The APC member said the APC governors are billed to meet again this morning to wrap up their consultations, reduce the names to three and also issue a statement to that effect.

The ruling party would hope to pick a presidential candidate that can compete with the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, Labour Party Candidate, Peter Obi and others.
