The All Progressives Congress (APC) is set for the unveiling of his Vice-Presidential candidate for the forthcoming 2023 General election.
The presidential candidate of the ruling party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in a statement issued days ago had announced former governor of Borno state, Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate for the presidential election.
However, the unveiling ceremony had been stalled due to some reasons known to the party.
In a statement issued on Tuesday morning by the APC National Organising Secretary, Suleiman Argungu, the party said Shettima will be officially unveiled by 1.00pm at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja.
The statement partly read, “The All Progressives Congress will formally unveil its Vice Presidential Candidate, Senator Kashim Shettima, to the Nigerian public.
“All members of the National Executive Committee, Progressives Governors’ Forum, APC Caucus in the National Assembly, Federal Executive Council, diplomatic corps and presidential aspirants at the June 2022 Special National Convention, APC state chairmen, secretaries and organising secretaries are hereby invited to witness this landmark official unveiling of our great party’s vice presidential candidate.”
Tinubu is going ahead to unveil Shettima as his running mate despite backlash from several individuals, groups, including the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), who had rejected the Muslim-Muslim ticket.
