The Delta State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has backed Tinubu/presidential Shettima’s ticket, claiming that a Muslim-Muslim ticket will not deter state and South-South voters from voting for the party.
Mr. Jones Erue, the party’s immediate past State Chairman, stated on Friday that the APC in the state strongly backed the ticket to a resounding electoral victory in 2023.
“Delta APC is working assiduously in tandem with relevant stakeholders nationwide to deliver the Tinubu/Shettima presidential ticket,” he said.
“The truth must be told: Delta State APC is dead set on delivering the Tinubu/Shettima ticket in the state in the next presidential election.”
“The Party is presently mobilising not just members, but Deltans, in general, to vote massively for the presidential candidate of our great Party.
“I am of the very firm view that the Tinubu/Shettima is a ticket that is highly capable of moving the country to the next level of economic growth that is desperately needed right now.
“It is urgently necessary for us to disabuse the minds of our people in the Niger Delta states that the Tinubu/Shettima ticket as a jihadist agenda against the existential survival of Christians in Nigeria, particularly in the South-South.”
Erie, who is the National Coordinator of the Progressives Christians For Tinubu-Shettima and Coordinator of Niger Delta Christian Ministers, further assured that no amount of blackmail or innuendo being spread about the Muslim-Muslim ticket would be able to derail the people of the State and the South-South from voting the Tinubu/Shettima.
He said what was behind the emergence of the Tinubu/Shettima ticket was competence and service delivery, not religious pontifications.
