The All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed the official unveiling of a former Governor of Borno State, ALhaji Kashim Shetima, as its vice presidential candidate for the 2023 general election.
Shetima was meant to have been presented to Party members at the APC national Secretariat, in Abuja, on Thursday, but the Chairman of the APC Press Corp told reporters the event has been moved forward.
He said a new date would be announced in due time and that the date would probably be sometime next week.
The Press Corp chairman said the directive for the postponement was given by the APC’s Deputy National Secretary.
No reason has been given for the decision which comes amid controversy over the choice of a Muslim-Muslim ticket by the party.
