The Middle-Belt Congress (MBC) has told the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator Kashim Shettima, to resign in order ‘to save the party from perceived impending electoral misfortune’.

MBC convener, Bilal Abdullahi, stated this on Wednesday during a press briefing in Abuja.

He noted that a Muslim-Muslim ticket for APC was a ‘baggage’ that could have meaningful impact on the 2023 presidential election.

“The Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC comes with its attendant political baggage,” Abdullahi said.


“If the APC, as a party, is desirous of making any meaningful impact in the 2023 presidential elections, it behooves on the party to retrace its steps in the composition of its presidential ticket.

“We are constrained to believe that the self-confession of Senator Kashim Shettima towards the Christian community might be a ruse, as his actions of late do not indicate that of a religious tolerant individual.

“It remains a statement that since the nomination of Senator Kashim Shettima, the APC evolved into a riotous organization with various stakeholders in abhorrence for the choice of a Northern Muslim at the detriment of credible and capable Northern Christians.”

Chronicle NG reports that Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the APC picked Shettima as his running mate despite warnings against a Muslim Muslim ticket.
