Tinubu-Shettima Ticket here to Serve the Country – APC Blast PDP

The All Progressives Congress Grassroots Governance Group (APC-G3) has urged leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to stop pulling the ruling party into their unruly problems.

The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of APC-G3, Kingsley Ndunagu, warned in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja.

Ndunagu expressed concern that Sen. Walid Jibrin, the chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees, was attempting to impose religion on the APC’s selection of presidential and vice presidential candidates.

“It is wrong of Jibrin to say that the problems arising from PDP’s presidential primary could not be compared with the situation in the APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket issues.

“The PDP leaders know that their party may not even come out second in the presidential election.

“This informed their desperation to drag the formidable Tinubu/Shettima ticket into their trouble,’’ he stated.

Ndunagu emphasised that Christians and Muslims have coexisted together in the nation and will do so in the future.

He pressed the PDP to justify to Nigerians how it intended to foster national cohesion after breaking its promise to allow power to rotate.

“Their selfishness did not allow them to acknowledge the unity and stability of Nigeria like the APC did.

“Christians and Muslims have been living together in Nigeria, but selfish politicians are trying to divide us.

“The PDP should explain what they will tell Nigerians who want to live as one, how they want to unite our country.

“These are the same people who called for power rotation in 2014 but are now working against it.

“The APC as a responsible party wants all Nigerians to be one, irrespective of religion and ethnicity,’’ Ndunagu stressed.

He claimed that members of the APC, particularly the president and northern governors, had adopted a policy of power rotation.

“That is the way to go in a multi-ethnic society. From all indications, PDP may not even be in the second position in the presidential election, hence their desperation.

“Nigerians must see the Tinubu-Shettima ticket as being here to serve the country, not a particular group of people,’’ Ndunagu added.
