Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

Ahead of today’s national convention, President Muhammadu Buhari has received the names of five aspirants for consideration as the consensus presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Stonix News reports that the names were submitted to him by APC governors from the North.

In the short list are Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu, President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan; former Transportation minister, Rotimi Amaechi and governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State.

The Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, confirmed the list.

He said those whose names were submitted had been graded by the party screening committee based on specified criteria.

The governor affirmed that the shortlist does not stop other candidates from presenting themselves for the primary.

Stonix News had reported that the governors had approached the president on Monday to solicit his support for a southern candidate.

The meeting they had with the president came on the heelsof the announcement by the National Chairman of the APC, Senator Adamu Abdulahi, that he (President Buhari) had endorsed Lawan as the consensus candidate.

The Presidency, however, vehemently denied it, saying that Buhari wanted the delegates to decide.
