Amid the zoning crisis rocking the political parties ahead of the 2023 presidential election, the All Progressive Congress (APC), South African Chapter has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s Successor should be a Nigerian from the Diaspora.


The party Chairman of the South Africa Chapter, Bola Babarinde made this known after Philip Idaewor, Chairman of Forum of APC Diaspora declared his intention to run for Nigeria’s presidency in 2023.

The source gathered that Idaewor, a medical doctor and Chairman of APC in the UK, made his intention known via a zoom conference of his campaign group and media on Sunday, September 26, 2021.

Reacting to Idaewor presidential ambition, Babarinde said that the party needed a candidate that had lived abroad and understood what good governance was all about.

According to him, the Chairmen of Diaspora chapters are deliberating on ways to contribute to the development of the party and Nigeria.

“We are deliberating on someone that will carry ordinary Nigerians along, someone that believes in the federation and not the present unitary system we are practising due to our faulty constitution.

“We are very serious in making the real change happen and not just as a slogan,” Babarinde said.

On the APC National Convention, Babarinde said the Gov. Mai Mala-Buni-led Caretaker and Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), was not carrying the diaspora chapters along as expected.

“Presently, no relationship between APC Caretaker Committee and most, if not all, of the diaspora chapters; no direct information to us.

“It is also very difficult to communicate with the CECPC, no clear line of communication for now.

“We are not sure of the plans of the caretaker committee for us in the Diaspora,” he added
