2023: APC stakeholders kick against Muslim-Muslim ticket

APC denies bribing INEC and voters

The National Stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have voiced their support for the party’s vice-presidential candidate to be a northern Christian.

This comes amid speculation that flag bear, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, might go for a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

Speaking at a programme to mark the June 12 Democracy Day, Convener of the APC National Stakeholders Forum, Aliyu Audu, disclosed that the need to reject the temptation of presenting another Muslim candidate as a running mate will ensure national inclusion and promote national unity.

He said, “Why we are conscious of the fact that religion should not be a determining factor in the our leadership selection proces. The peculiar circumstance the nation finds herself calls for reflection in the decisions we take, so long as they bother on our national lives.

“Today, the country is deeply divided within our fault lines of ethnicity and religion and we cannot afford to jettison this sensibility in critical decision making.

“This is why we think that the All Progressives Congress must be guided by the sense of these sensibilities in the selection of the Vice Presidential Candidate of the party.
