PDP Crisis, Not Muslim-Muslim Ticket, Should Be Nigerians Concern – APC

THE All Progressives Congress (APC) says the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should draw the attention of Nigerians more the Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.

The ruling party accused the opposition of using the same faith ticket controversy to distract Nigerians from its internal crisis.

Felix Morka, national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), made this known in an interview with Channels Television on Friday.

In July, Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate, picked Kashim Shettima, former governor of Borno, who is also a Muslim, as his running mate for the 2023 presidential election.

The development was met with vehement opposition from various quarters, including the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

On the other hand, Atiku Abubakar, a northerner, is the PDP presidential candidate – a situation that has angered some stakeholders who argued that the party should have zoned its ticket to the south in the line with power rotation and in the spirit of fairness and equity.

The APC spokesperson said “attention” must be given to how the PDP shunned power rotation in the choice of its presidential candidate.
