President Muhammadu Buhari has hinted on how his successor will emerge in 2023.

He said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and not him will decide who succeeds him

He spoke on Thursday while fielding questions from journalists of Arise TV during an exclusive interview.

The President said: “About succession, what this admin can do is to make sure APC lasts beyond this administration.

“We have started registration from ward to local government and to the state level. That way, the APC can know the number of members they have state by state and local government by local government, so that by the time this administration goes, the legacy can continue.
