APC Stakeholders Recommend Gov. Zulum As Tinubu’s Running Mate

By Damilare Adeleye

A forum of stakeholders of All Progressives Congress (APC) has recommended Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, as vice-presidential candidate of the party in the forthcoming presidential election.

The 840 groups, which make up the forum, said if Zulum is adopted as Tinubu's running mate, it would help the party to win the presidential election and also assist in the effort to rescue the country from collapsing.

The National Chairman of the forum, Abdullahi Aliyu Katsina, made this disclosure in Katsina on Sunday.

While addressing leaders of the seven states of the Northwest, he explained that only governor Zulum, who has won the hearts of Nigerians through his exemplary leadership over the last three years, can, in turn, make people vote for the party next year.

He added that the sacrifice Governor Zulum made in Borno State was enough for the APC to give him the opportunity to replicate it in Nigeria.

In his words, “Our request is open and is no more than taking Governor Zulum of Borno State as the vice-presidential candidate of APC.”

He added, “We understand that only Governor Zulum can galvanize the votes from entire nineteen northern states.

“To avoid losing the election, the only person in Nigeria today who can bring the desired success for the party is Governor Zulum. Anybody today that is picked as vice-presidential candidate for the APC, if not Zulum, may not give us the desired success.

“Failure for the party to pick Zulum, it may end up losing the election.”
