The All Progressives Congress said on Wednesday that what the party’s National Executive Committee did at its last meeting, was to pass a vote of confidence in President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led National Working Committee.
This, the APC said, was not the same as endorsing the President for a second term.
The party explained that the issue of endorsing the President for a second term did not form part of discussions during the NEC meeting.
The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, said on Wednesday.
In response to a question on whether the endorsement of Buhari for a second term in 2019 was part of decisions taken during the party’s last NEC meeting, Abdullahi said, “No.”
