APC Northern Christian leaders

Christian leaders of the All Progressives Congress from the north have vowed to set up a committee to consult Christian and Muslim stakeholders on a different political party to support in the 2023 presidential election.

This was disclosed in a communiqué issued after the APC Northern Christian leaders summit issued on Saturday in Abuja and jointly signed by Doknan Sheni (Plateau) North Central; Ishaya Bauka (Taraba) North East and Saidu Ibrahim (Jigawa) North West.

The leaders said the committee was to arrive at the best platform that would better galvanise and steer their patriotic spirits and resolve towards collectively building a united multi religious, multi-ethnic society as guaranteed by Nigeria constitution.

The leaders said that after careful considerations and deliberations, the summit resolved that the adoption of a Muslim–Muslim ticket by their party was divisive, unjust and insensitive.

It, however, stated that the Northern Christians in APC would not support or enable any attempt to divide Nigeria along religious lines.

“We resolved that we will set up a committee within us with a mandate to go round Nigeria and consult with both Christians and Muslim stakeholders, including other stakeholders.”

“That all delegates will return to their communities and disseminate these resolutions and await the convocation of the next summit where a final decision would be taken on the ticket that we will collectively vote for in 2023.”
