Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress, APC’s presidential candidate for the 2023 election, has finally decided to name Senator Kashim Shettima, a fellow Muslim politician as his running mate.
The former governor of Lagos State had earlier been urged by several stakeholders against choosing a Muslim running mate since a Muslim-Muslim ticket would exclude Christians.
However, speaking at a press conference on Sunday, in Katsina, Tinubu stated that he has decided to run with Senator Shettima.
