The All Progressives Congress National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has described the party’s Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, as the best combination for victory in the 2023 election.

Adamu stated this on Sunday while defending the party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket during a new interview.

He said, “Ordinarily, I respect the views of people and the politics of people. I cannot for any reason tell you that I don’t care what anybody feels; I do care. But this is Nigeria for you and me. We are inhabited by Christians and Muslims, and we are involved in multi-party politics in Nigeria, and every party in its own value judgment would place on the platform the candidates they feel best can win election. It’s as simple as that. This is politics. Whether you are Muslim or Christian, you know that God Himself does not act in vain. The Bible says it, the Quran says it and our Hadith says so. Our position regarding what you are talking about cannot be any different. We are human beings and we do things to the limit of our understanding and wishes and try to work to get to the desired destination with the combination of the aspirants that we have.”

No doubt about it. I’ll be extremely insensitive not to be accommodating on that. But the fact of the matter is we have a platform called the APC, and when the APC speaks, mine is to lay it along the direction.”

“I will never say that the Christian vote doesn’t matter,” said Adamu when asked if his party’s decision to field a Muslim-Muslim ticket was because Christian votes didn’t matter. “That will be the last thing I will say in my life in politics,” he added.

Speaking on if non-Muslims will be pleased with the party’s ticket, the APC chairman said, “The fact of the matter is, in anything you do in this world, somebody wins and somebody loses.”
