The presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Dumebi Kachikwu, has unveiled Ahmed Buhari as his running mate for the 2023 presidential election.
Naija News reports that he unveiled Buhari, a consultant in the oil and gas sector, in Abuja on Wednesday.
Speaking during the event, Kachikwu described Buhari as someone with the capacity to unite Nigeria.
He said: “Buhari has over 18 years experience as a professional and is both physically and theologically fit to occupy the office of the Vice-President.
“He is very intellectual and is ready for office from day one come 2023.”
A Call To Rescue Nigeria
Buhari, while speaking at his unveiling, thanked the ADC presidential candidate for choosing him as his running mate.
“I thank Kachikwu for this opportunity and the entire leadership of the party.This is a call to service and, indeed, a call to rescue Nigeria, and I am ready for it.
“In the last two months, I have been called by some political parties to be their party’s vice presidential candidate, but I turned them down for reasons best known to me.
“I am ready to serve, and I have chosen ADC as the right platform, and in 2019 when I ran for office, I promised only to support a southerner and that is what I am doing now,” he said.
Also, the party’s National Chairman, Ralph Nwosu, charged Kachikwu and his running mate to live up to expectations and uphold the party’s integrity.
He said: “On behalf of NWC, the NEC, the board of trustees, and all ADC members, I hereby unveil and present the party’s flag to Buhari as Dumebi Kachikwu’s running mate for the 2023 election.
“ADC has transitioned from the ADC of 19 years ago to a new ADC by presenting the two youngest presidential and vice presidential candidates.”
Buhari holds a degree in Geology and MSc in Geographic Information Systems and Spatial Analysis. He also has a Professional Diploma in International Trade and Marketing and is currently running an MBA in Data Science and Analytics
