    Tinubu/Shettima: APC Chieftain Dumps Party Over Muslim-Muslim Ticket

    A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State, Air Vice Marshal Frank Ajobena (retd.) has quit the party following the decision of the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu to pick Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate.

    The retired Air Force chief, in a statement on Monday, described the Muslim-Muslim ticket as “the highest level of insensitivity to the Christian faith in the country.”

    Recall that Bola Tinubu on Sunday in Daura, Katsina State, announced the choice of former Borno State Governor, Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate.

    AVM Ajobena, who was the first Military Administrator of Abia State, noted further that it was inhumane for such a decision to be taken by Tinubu, whom he said, he respected so much

    The statement read partly, “Tinubu is not my enemy, I am not against him. But let’s call a spade a spade. It is not my character to be a double agent, I am not pretending; even though I like the APC, the right thing should be done.

    “The decision could be described as one that portrays arrogance and total disrespect to us, Christians, in the APC.

    “The latest development portrays us as a people who can easily be bought over with money. Such an action is a minus to our democratic system. In what capacity will I be serving in his campaign train? As a slave?

    “A man must stand for something, else will fall for anything, hence, I am quitting”.
