By Sola Omoniyi, Lagos

The Presidential candidates of some opposition political parties in the 2023 general elections on Thursday, August 31, placed a demand on the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, to persuade President Bola Tinubu for inclusion in his government.

The former candidates requested a courtesy call on the APC national chairman at the party’s national secretariat, Abuja.

They are members of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Action Democratic Party, National Rescue Movement, and Action Peoples Party.

The candidates who are under the aegis of the Forum of Concerned Presidential Candidates (CPC) disclosed that their decision not to challenge the victory of President Tinubu at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal was informed by the need for peace and development of the country.

CPC’s spokesperson, the National Rescue Movement presidential candidate, Ambassador Felix Johnson Osakwe, assured the president and the party that they were for peace.
