The All Progressive Congress (APC) has urged Nigerians to ignore the misleading reports and talks about the choice of the party running mate saying that the party had not even met to talk about such. The APC has assured that the choice of its running mate will be made within the context of best democratic ideals just like that of its presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.

In a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, on Sunday, the party described the reports that a running mate has been picked to run with the APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, as unnecessarily sensational, downright speculative and totally misleading.

The statement said, 'We are using this opportunity to tell Nigerians to pray for us as we seek to pick a running mate for our presidential candidate. This is because this choice is not just for us but for all of Nigeria.

'We are glad with the feedback we have received from Nigerians on the transparent and rancour-free manner in which our presidential primaries was organized. We are assuring Nigerians that the choice of our presidential running mate will also be guided by best democratic ideals.

'We appreciate the nationwide interest that the choice of our presidential candidate and his running mate has generated. It is a mark of the confidence that Nigerians repose in us. We assure that we will not disappoint our compatriots who have seen our party as the agent of the change they so much crave.”
