2023: APC reacts to threat by Northern youths to withdraw support

The Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to a threat by the leadership of the North-East Youth and Stakeholders Forum of the ruling party to withdraw their support for the party’s vice presidential candidate, Senator Kashim Shettima.

Recall POLITICS NIGERIA had reported that the North-East party caucus vowed that they would withdraw support for the former governor of Borno State “for continually undermining its effort”.

Reacting, Festus Keyamo (SAN), the Chief Spokesperson of the APC PCC who also doubles as the Minister of State, Labour and Employment, said Shettima has been working with all the groups and will not favour anyone above the other.

“There are many groups in the North East working for the success of our party.

“Our Vice-Presidential candidate appreciates all the groups, including this one, and we need all the groups. We will sort it out internally. But the H.E Kashim Shettima will not treat one of these groups as more important than others, nor would he be blackmailed by any such group.

“It is also obvious that they are exaggerating the numbers here and may be overstating their influence. Glad to read that they still love the APC and remain within the Party,” Vanguard quotes Keyamo as saying.
