Published

The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate for the 2023 election, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has announced Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate, and Nigerians are reacting to it.

Ripples Nigeria gathered that Shettima would be presented to President Muhammadu Buhari in his hometown, Daura, where he went to celebrate the Eid festival with his family.

Placeholder Vice-presidential candidate, Ibrahim Kabir Masari had already resigned.

Shettima is currently the representative of Borno Central Senatorial District, and was a former two-term Governor of Borno State.

The choice to select Shettima would make APC field a Muslim-Muslim ticket, which is not constitutionally wrong but perceived to be undermining the large presence of Christian faithfuls in Nigeria.
