The All Progressives Congress has postponed the official unveiling of Kashim Shettima, as its vice presidential candidate for the 2023 general election.
Shettima, a former Borno State Governor, was meant to have been presented to party members at the APC national Secretariat on Thursday, but the Chairman of the APC Press Corp told reporters the event has been moved forward.
He said a new date will be announced in due time and that the date would probably be sometime next week.
The Press Corp chairman said the directive for the postponement was given by the party’s Deputy National Secretary.
No reason has been given for the decision which comes amid controversy over the choice of a Muslim-Muslim ticket by the party.
The announcement of Kashim Shettima as vice presidential candidate which constitutes a Muslim-Muslim ticket for the APC and its flagbearer of the Bola Ahmed, was greeted with an uproar along with agitation from various quarters including resignation of the party’s Lega Adviser, Daniel Bwala among others.
