The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it will officially unveil Kashim Shettima, former governor of Borno, as the running mate of Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the party, on Wednesday.
In a notice on Tuesday, Sulaiman Argungu, national organising secretary of the party, said the event will be held at Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre located in the federal capital territory (FCT) by 11:00 am.
Argungu invited members of the party’s national executive committee (NEC), federal executive council (FEC) members and members of the diplomatic corps among others to the “landmark unveiling ceremony”.
“All members of the national executive committee (NEC), Members of the Progressives Governors’ Forum, members of APC caucus in the national assembly, members of the federal executive council (FEC), members of the diplomatic corps, presidential aspirants at the June 2022 special national convention, APC State chairmen, APC state secretaries and APC state organising secretaries, are, hereby, invited to witness this landmark official unveiling of our great party’s vice-presidential candidate,” the notice by the secretary read.
Tinubu’s choice of running mate elicited widespread criticisms because both men are Muslims.
