Some stakeholders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in north-central have made a strong case for the region to produce the party’s presidential running mate for equity and stability.
The North Central APC Stakeholders Forum, which made this known at a press conference in Abuja, warned the party not to make the mistake of ignoring the zone in the scheme of things.
According to a statement signed by its Coordinator, Bala Danladi Adamu, the group said the north-central is critical to the party’s success in 2023, considering its innumerable contributions to the growth and development of the APC over the years.
Adamu said not only will a Christian from the region balance the presidential ticket, but he also added that it will ultimately guarantee success at the polls.
The group, therefore, urged President Muhammadu Buhari, party leaders and elders from the north-central zone to settle for a young and vibrant Christian out of the “array of credible individuals that fit the bill of the vice-presidential candidate for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu”.
Failure to do so, Adamu, however, cautioned that doom awaits the party as it would be further divided along ethnic and religious lines.
