APC has reportedly picked Kano Governor Ganduje as Tinubu’s running mate.
Newsone understands that there are reports that the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party, has reportedly picked the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, as the preferred running mate for the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, ahead of the 2023 presidential elections in Nigeria.
This revelation was contained in a press statement issued by the Director-General of Ganduje’s Support Group, Suleiman Magaji, and made available to newsmen in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
According to the statement, the APC National Working Committee narrowed down the choice of Tinubu’s running mate to the incumbent Kano State Governor on the basis of loyalty, commitment, and infrastructural development of his state.
Newsone Nigeria reports that statement, however, acknowledges that the issue of religion played out eloquently during the selection process but noted that Nigerians are more interested in developmental stride rather than religious affairs.
The group, while commending the National Working Committee of the party for the choice made thus far, called on all the party faithful to support the duo to enable the party emerge victorious in the presidential elections.
“It is time we close ranks to ensure victory for all our candidates from the ward levels to the presidency,” the statement added.
