We don't have the authority to limit aspirants — Gov. Sule


Nasarawa State Governor Abdullahi Sule has stated that the governors of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have no authority to lower the number of presidential candidates.

If all 23 aspirants examined by the party insist on running for office, he says the party will hold elections for all of them.

Governor Sule, who is also the Chairman of the election's Media and Publicity Committee, said the party is ready for elections in an interview broadcast on Channels.

"Neither the governors nor the party have the authority to reduce the number of candidates." Because, according to Section 84 (Sections 9-10), if one person says, 'I am not going to withdraw,' an election must be held," he remarked in response to the governors' decision to limit the number of candidates to five.

"As far as we're concerned, we're already set for election, and if all 23 persons who are there have been screened by the party and are eligible to vote, we'll hold elections."

So the governors' notion of cutting down to a specific number of people was simply to minimise the number of people we aim to help in order to reduce strain. It is not necessary to compel anyone to resign."
