The All Progressives Congress will choose its presidential candidate through an indirect primary election.

The decision was reached at the party’s 11th National Executive Committee meeting held at the Transcorp Hotel in Abuja.

The announcement quashes earlier suggestions that the ruling party might go with a consensus candidate ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

The National Working Committee of APC had on Tuesday met for several hours to deliberate on several issues including the timetable for the general election primaries.

Also, President Muhammadu Buhari and other leaders of the party transmitted their powers to the NWC.
