Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has urged politicians seeking to be president in 2023 to join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Mr Buhari stated this Thursday in an exclusive interview with ARISE TV.

When asked about his succession plan, he said, “The succession plan depends on the party. We are going to leave it for the party. The party will sit and make decision by the constituency they want and so on. So, those who want to be president should better join APC.”

Mr Muhammadu also noted that APC would decide which region the presidency would be zoned to in 2023.

He added that the APC caretaker committee would submit a report to him by the end of June.

Mr Buhari said the report would show when the APC would organise its convention.
