Tinubu/Shettima ticket APC presidential aspirants

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, former Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi and 20 other aspirants of the All Progressives Congress, APC, will meet again in Abuja on August 31.

The meeting is coming three months after they went head-to-head at the APC primary presidential ticket, which produced Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the party’s standard flagbearer.

It was gathered that the meeting would focus on Tinubu’s preference for a Muslim-Muslim ticket after he chose Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate.

Recall that Tinubu came under heavy criticism over the choice of Shettima within the APC camp, with several former aspirants and party chieftains feeling left out of his campaign plan.

In a statement on Thursday, the media team of APC’s youngest aspirant, Dr Nicolas Felix, disclosed that virtually all the aspirants who participated in the last presidential convention would converge in Abuja next week.

The statement partly read, “The special invitation to the strategic meeting of all 2023 APC presidential aspirants, which will be held at Transcorp Hilton in Abuja, on Wednesday, August 31st, 2022 by 2pm is to brainstorm on adopting winning campaign strategies that will carry every Nigerian along and address the challenges bedevilling our country.”
