Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, says the President must go through party primaries if he wants to fly the APC's flag again in 2019.

While admitting that Buhari is democratically qualified to re-contest the presidential election, he said that the party needs to avoid imposition of candidates.

“We don’t allow imposition of candidates. It must be democratically done. If President Buhari will lead the ship in 2019, it must be democratically done.

“I said, democratically and transparently done to the amazement of the whole world, the way we do our things in APC and people will be happy,” he added.

Perhaps, this is why he is at the forefront of President Buhari’s planned tour of the southeast region in order to boost his popularity ahead of 2019.

Some APC Governors have advocated for automatic ticket for Buhari to enable him seek re-election in 2019.

The governors include: Abdul aziz Yari of Zamfara; Samuel Ortom of Benue; Simon Lalong of Plateau and Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa.
