2023: Why APC will be in trouble if Shettima is dropped – Ex-Minister

As the 2023 elections draw near, the Director-General (DG) of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu Support Group, Adebayo Shittu, has said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), “will be in trouble” if it bows to ‘pressure’ and drop Kashim Shettima as Tinubu’s running mate.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that according to Shittu, a former Minister of Communications, it ‘took the APC and Tinubu time’ to decide on Shettima.

Shettima is a former governor of Borno State and serving Senator.

“The truth is that if Shettima is dropped as a result of this pressure from within and outside the party, APC will be in trouble. What we need to factor in here is the time it took Tinubu, the Northern governors, and the party to decide on his candidacy,” Shittu told Punch in a report published on Thursday.

Speaking further, Shittu wondered why people are furious with Tinubu’s choice, asking them to opt for other presidential candidates if they are dissatisfied.
