The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has explained why it is recommending consensus candidates in its congresses.

According to the party, the move is aimed at reducing acrimony within the party when it elects its officials.

In a statement on Wednesday, John Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary of the APC Caretaker Committee, said there is a need to accommodate “everyone because the APC is a party for all Nigerians.”

“For us, we have to take into consideration the need to accommodate everyone because the APC is a party for all Nigerians,” Akpanudoedehe said.

Further, he said: “We are encouraging states to adopt the consensus arrangement because it saves costs and reduces acrimony. That is why when you look at Article 20 of our constitution which talks about elections, the first thing there is for members to try reaching a consensus. When that fails, then you go to cast ballots.

“We are making sure we do not leave any room for the opposition, especially the Peoples Democratic Party to sponsor people to cause confusion in our midst.”
