Today, not only is the entire APC primary process turning into a charade, with confusing modes and conflicting dates; the general optics is also that candidates are being imposed on the people.Let us consider the candidacy of Muhammadu Buhari, the sitting president.
Let me start by giving kudos to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)for the great improvement shown in the Osun governorship election. Further, declaring the election inconclusive is a good decision. It is constitutionally intra vires, has ample precedents, and ought to be respected by all parties. Best of all, the election results thus far offer a salutary lesson why the All Progressives Congress (APC) should not adopt Muhammadu Buhari as the presidential nominee of the party towards the 2019 election.The lesson is that the Nigerian masses are fed up with imposition of candidates or any semblance of such.
