The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has reaffirmed that the same faith presidential ticket by the party is the best thing Nigerians need at the moment.
Adamu, who spoke with BBC Hausa Service, also said that the same faith ticket is the best strategy for the governing party to win the forthcoming general elections.
He said: “You see, with the situation, we are in the country, you can’t convince everybody. It’s a democracy, and everyone has his right but for us, same faith ticket is the best thing for Nigeria presently.
“But we will not relent, we will work to ensure we convince Nigerians to fully support this Tinubu/Shettima ticket, every party has its strategy and this is the strategy that we think can best work for us.”
Despite the current security and economic challenges facing the country, the party chairman expressed optimism on victory, insisting the current situation “won’t stop them from winning the election.
“Yes, there’s insecurity in the country and every country faces its own kind of insecurity. The media don’t publicise government efforts adequately,” he said.
The APC standard bearer, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu picked former Borno Governor Senator Kashim Shettima, as his running mate ahead of the February 2023 presidential election.
