Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma has stated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will give the 2023 presidential ticket to the candidate that has the capacity to win the election.
Uzodimma, who spoke in an interview with Channels TV on Monday, said the APC will not give the ticket to a member just because such a person speaks good English or abuses people on television.
Asked if he is sure that the ticket will be zoned to the South-East, Uzodimma said the party is more concerned about retaining the seat and would present a candidate capable of winning.
He said, “This ticket is not an airline ticket. We are talking about having a presidential candidate. It is a decision of the party. It has to be a collective decision,” he added.
“Nobody will get the presidential ticket because he spoke good English on the television. Nobody will get the presidential ticket because he was abusing people on television. It is a decision of the party and many factors will be responsible — covert and overt factors — because at the end of the day, the ticket will be given to a name that can win the election. Winnability is the name.”
