The Middle-Belt Congress (MBC) has called on Senator Kashim Shettima, running mate to the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to resign as the running mate to avoid what the group described as impending electoral misfortune in the 2023 general elections.
Mr Bilal Abdullahi, the Middle-Belt Congress leader, while briefing newsmen in Abuja, explained that the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC, came with its attendant political baggage and declared that if the APC, as a party, is desirous of making any meaningful impact in the 2023 presidential elections, the party should retrace its steps in the composition of its presidential ticket.
The group further explained that it believed that the self-confession of love towards the Christian community by Senator Kashim Shettima might be a ruse, adding that his actions of late indicate otherwise
The MBC stated that it was morally unjustifiable for Senator Kashim Shettima to hold onto the Vice Presidential slot of the APC, saying that such action had heated the polity in ways too numerous to mention in the country and appealed to Shettima to act with honour by resigning his nomination as the presidential running mate of the APC in the interest of peace and tranquillity.
