The All Progressives Congress (APC) appears to have chosen Alhaji Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the Governor of Kano State, as the preferred running mate for the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, ahead of the 2023 presidential elections.
This information was contained in a press statement issued by Ganduje’s Support Group Director General, Comrade Suleiman Magaji, and made available to journalists in Abuja.
According to the statement, the APC National Working Committee chose the incumbent Kano State Governor as Tinubu’s running mate based on his state’s allegiance, commitment, and infrastructure development.
The 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 religion affairs.
While commending the National Working Committee of the party for the choice made thus far, the group called on all party faithfuls to support the duo to enable the party emerge victorious in the presidential elections.
“It is time we close rank to ensure victory for all our candidates from the ward levels to the presidency,” the statement added.
