The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), says it is looking for educated Nigerians to contest in the 2023 general elections.
Mai Mala Buni, Chairman of the APC Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) made this known on Tuesday at an event organised by the APC Professionals’ Forum at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, to showcase the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
Secretary of the APC Caretaker Committee, John Akpanudoedehe who represented Buni at the event, said; “We are looking for educated people to contest for every available position in Nigeria. At this time, if you don’t succeed, you will be compensated.
“You must contest. Women must contest; that Disabled people must contest. Young professionals must contest.
“Rest assured, the chairman is a listening man, and what we will do to enhance you, we will do it”
Buni, thanked the forum for enlightening Nigerians on the achievements, programmes and policies of Mr Buhari.
President Muhammadu Buhari and APC National leader, had been accused of not having the Cambridge West African School Certificate Ordinary Level he claimed he obtained in 1961.
Buhari had defended himself, insisting he attended the Provincial Secondary School, Katsina, and sat the University of Cambridge/WASSCE examination, (which he reportedly passed in the Second Division).
