Northern group fault Tinubu over choice of running mate.

The Arewa Solidarity Group (ASG), has frowned at the choice of former Governor of Borno state, Kashim Shettima as the running mate of the APC presidential flagbearer, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, insisting that Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State would’ve been much better.

The Chairman, Board of Trustees ( BoT) of the group, Abdullahi Muhammed Jika, told journalists in Kaduna that the All Progressives Congress (APC) did not consider the critical success factor for the victory of Tinubu in the forthcoming 2023 election.


Jika said that the acceptability of a candidate is a great factor in winning an election, adding that the ruling APC jettisoned the acceptability factor while making the choice of running mate.

Beyond the political strength of northwest region where governor El-Rufa’i is based, his political clout and performances in the space of his administration is what the party would have considered.


There is no doubt, in the present political dispensation, that Governor El-Rufa’i has proven his worth as a political administrator with the can-do spirit to match the yearning of Nigerians, he said.
