Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, on Tuesday scoffed at members of opposition parties for being bothered about the affairs in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Bashir, in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle, said opposition parties had no business with issues of the ruling party.
The ruling party, subsequent to its presidential primary election, has been tensed as regards who the running mate of its flag bearer, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, should be.
While a number of Nigerians especially outside the party challenge its plan to settle for a Muslim-Muslim ticket citing religious implications, APC members have justified it on the basis of excellence and competence.
Speaking on the development, Bashir said members in the opposition trespassed by feeling bothered about the affairs in the ruling party.
He added that whatever the party agrees to settle for remains its sole business.
“I don’t just understand why the process for choosing the Vice Presidential candidate of our party becomes a headache for members of the opposition parties? A Muslim-Muslim or a Christian-Christian ticket or whatever combination we come up with is only a business of ours not yours”, he said.
