APC presidential candidate, Tinubu and Kashim Shettima
11th July, 2022
Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has debunked reports that its legal adviser has resigned in protests over selection of of Kashim Shettima as the running mate of its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu
APC National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, in a statement on Monday described the report as as false and misleading.
The reports followed announcement by Abuja based lawyer, Daniel Bwala, that he is quitting the ruling party over the selection of Shetimmma, who like Tinubu, is a Muslim.
But in its statement, Morka said Bwala is not the party’s legal adviser.
“Our attention has been drawn to a false and misleading report circulating on some media platforms that the National Legal Adviser of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has resigned.
“Barr. Ahmad Usman El-Marzuq is, and remains, the National Legal Adviser of APC.
“Barr. Daniel Bwala was not the National Legal Adviser of the Party as erroneously reported.
“The report is either borne out of mischief or extreme negligence. We urge the general public to kindly disregard,” Morka said.
