    Why I Won’t Be Voting For APC In 2023 – Edwin Clark

    The convener of the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), Edwin Clark, has revealed the reason he will not be voting for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 presidential election.

    Naija News reports that the Ijaw leader said was considering voting for the ruling APC but would not support the party because of the Muslim-Muslim ticket.

    Speaking on Tuesday when he received some members of the APC at his residence in Abuja, Clark said he would have loved to vote for the party because it zoned its presidency to the South.

    The elder statesman asserted that he would have voted for the APC if he was to vote between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the ruling party due to his belief in power shift.

    Clark said if he was to vote and only APC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are on the ballot, he would have voted for the APC for zoning presidency to the South.

    He said: “We have seen that up till today, we still believe in the southern presidency. So, that is why some of us had said that APC that we never wanted to talk about is the one that has listened to us by zoning presidency to the South.

    “Of course, I’m an old man now. I will be 95, and I no longer belong to a political party. Perhaps, if I were to vote, and you put only two parties —that is APC and PDP — I will vote for APC for zoning the presidency to the south, listening to our opinion.

    “But the only thing that your party has done that has made me withdraw my support is this Muslim-Muslim ticket.”
