Cross River state governor and APC Presidential aspirant, Ben Ayade explained the only condition necessary for the adoption of a consensus candidate.
The governor stated that there should be detailed reasons for the adoption of a consensus candidate by the APC.
Ayade told Channels Television on Tuesday that once he is convinced, he would accept the party’s decision and work with whoever gets the APC flag, describing himself as a team player.
“In a scenario where the party creates very classical elucidations of the basis and selection criteria that I find completely adequate, I will have no objection,” the Governor said.
“If they narrow down to somebody on the consensus basis and I don’t happen to be the one, I need to understand the selection criteria to explain how they arrived at Mr A and not B. If I feel that is a fair process, of course, I will yield to the supremacy of the party.
“I am a team player and I don’t have any qualms with that. But I must see that it is fair and transparent. I know that capacity will be one of the key factors in consideration,” he added.
