Running Mate: Stop Mounting Pressure On Tinubu - Agbomhere

Published by Nairaland on Sun, 19 Jun 2022

<blockquote><b>The chairman of the Forum of All Progressives Congress (APC) Organising Secretaries, Dr Blessing Agbomhere, has advised Nigerians <span style='color:#990000;'>to desist from mounting pressure</span> on the partys presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the choice of his running mate.</b><br><br>He said the APC standard bearer should be given the freedom to choose whoever he prefers as a running mate.<br><br><b>Agbomhere, who is also the Zonal APC Secretary for South-south, said a situation where leaders of some political groups and religious organisations are mounting pressure to influence the choice of one of their own does not augur well for the nations democracy.</b><br><br>The APC chieftain in a statement in Abuja on Saturday argued it is well within the constitutional rights of Tinubu to pick his running mate irrespective of the religious affiliation of the person he chooses.<br><br><b>He pointed out what Nigerians should be interested in is the candidate and political party that will bring desired development to the country and not <span style='color:#990000;'>whether Tinubu would run for the presidency on a Muslim-Muslim, Christian-Christian or any other combination of religious faiths.</span></b><br><br>Agbomhere said: <b>The emergence of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the Presidential Candidate of our great party, the All Progressives Congress has received wide acclaim, support and acceptance.</b><br><br><span style='color:#000099;'><b>All we need to do is to focus on winning the 2023 presidential election as a party and our victory will depend on our ability to carry Nigerians along. We cannot afford to lose focus by being distracted by who Tinubu may decide to choose as his running mate.</b></span><br><br><span style='color:#000099;'><b>The solution to the challenges confronting Nigeria does not rest on whether the running mate to Tinubu is Christain or Muslim.</b></span><br><br><span style='color:#000099;'><b>Nigerians are not interested in who becomes running mate to any of the presidential candidates. What they need is good governance that would guarantee security, stable polity and social-economic progress.</b></span><br><br><span style='color:#000099;'><b>Nobody can carry a pass to the market based on Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian tickets for Asiwaju or any other Presidential candidate and get food items free.</b></span><br><br><b>They only need a ticket that would guarantee the availability of products and economic empowerment to meet their needs.</b><br><br><span style='color:#000099;'><b>We are ready to support and vote for Tinubu irrespective of who he chooses as his running mate and we will work to ensure that Nigerians do the same.</b></span></blockquote><br><a rel=ugc href="https://thenationonlineng.net/stop-mounting-pressure-on-tinubu-over-running-mate-agbomhere/">https://thenationonlineng.net/stop-mounting-pressure-on-tinubu-over-running-mate-agbomhere/</a>
