6 With President Muhammadu Buhari having been elected to the office of president twice, he is ineligible for reelection.

There is no announced formal zoning agreement for the APC nomination, however, there have been calls from certain politicians and interest groups such as the Southern Governors’ Forum to zone the nomination to the South as Buhari, a Northerner, was elected twice.
