Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, says that Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket fielded by the ruling party is the best thing Nigerians need at the moment.
Speaking with BBC Hausa Service, Senator Adamu also noted that the Muslim-Muslim ticket is the best strategy for the APC to win the forthcoming general elections.
The APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, had picked former governor of Borno State, Senator Kashim Shettima, as his running mate – a choice that led to an outrage among some chieftains of the party and many Nigerians at large.
In his words, “You see, with the situation we are in the country, you can’t convince everybody. It’s democracy, everyone has his right but for us, same faith ticket is the best thing for Nigeria presently.
“But we will not relent, we will work to ensure we convince Nigerians to fully support this Tinubu/Shettima ticket, every party has its strategy and this is our strategy that we think can best work for us.”
Adamu also said security and economic challenges in the country won’t stop them from winning the election.
“Yes, there’s insecurity in the country and every country faces its own kind of insecurity. The media don’t publicise government efforts adequately,” he said.
