As the 2023 elections approach, Adebayo Shittu, the Director-General (DG) of the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu Support Group, has warned that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will be in trouble if it submits to the current pressure mounted on them over the Muslim-Muslim ticket and drops Kashim Shettima as Tinubu’s running mate.
According to reports, Since Tinubu announced Shettima as his running mate on Sunday, reactions have continued to trail his choice, as both men are Muslims. Shettima is a senator and former governor of Borno State.
According to reports, Shittu, a former Minister of Communications, said that it “took the APC and Tinubu time” to decide on Shettima.
He stated: “The truth is that if Shettima is dropped as a result of this internal and external pressure, the APC will be in trouble.
“What we need to consider here is how long Tinubu, the Northern governors, and the party took to decide on his candidacy.”
Shittu went on to question why people are upset with Tinubu’s choice, urging them to vote for other presidential candidates if they are dissatisfied.
