2023: Shettima Told To Resign As APC Vice Presidential Candidate
As the 2023 election draws near, the Middle-Belt Congress (MBC) has requested that Bola Tinubu’s running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima of the All Progressives Congress (APC), resign in order to “save the party from perceived impending electoral misfortune.”
This demand was made by the MBC leader, Bilal Abdullahi, during a press conference on Wednesday in Abuja, according to POLITICS NIGERIA.
MBC declared its opposition to the Muslim-Muslim APC ticket.
“The Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC comes with its attendant political baggage,” Abdullahi said.
“If the APC, as a party, is desirous of making any meaningful impact in the 2023 presidential elections, it behooves on the party to retrace its steps in the composition of its presidential ticket.
“We are constrained to believe that the self-confession of Senator Kashim Shettima towards the Christian community might be a ruse, as his actions of late do not indicate that of a religious tolerant individual.
“It remains a statement that since the nomination of Senator Kashim Shettima, the APC evolved into a riotous organization with various stakeholders in abhorrence for the choice of a Northern Muslim at the detriment of credible and capable Northern Christians.”
