The Delta State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has spoken on the controversial Muslim-Muslim of the ruling party, stating that the choice of Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima will not affect votes in the region in 2023.
The above assertion was made on Friday by the immediate past State Chairman of the party, Jones Erue, who said that APC's decision to go with candidates of the same religion will not stop people in the south-south from voting for the party on the presidential election.
"Delta APC is working assiduously in tandem with relevant stakeholders nationwide to deliver the Tinubu/Shettima presidential ticket.
“The truth must be said that Delta State APC is highly committed to delivering the Tinubu/Shettima ticket in the State on the next presidential election.
“The Party is presently mobilising not just members, but Deltans, in general, to vote massively for the presidential candidate of our great Party.
“I am of the very firm view that the Tinubu/Shettima is a ticket that is highly capable of moving the country to the next level of economic growth that is desperately needed right now.
“It is urgently necessary for us to disabuse the minds of our people in the Niger Delta states that the Tinubu/Shettima ticket as a jihadist agenda against the existential survival of Christians in Nigeria, particularly in the South-South.”
