The Speaker of the House of Representatives Hon Yakubu Dogara and immediate past Secretary to the Government of the Federation Babachir David Lawal have continued their consultation with a visit to former presidents Ibrahim Babangida and Abdullsam Abubakar over the All Progress Congress (APC) Muslim Muslim ticket.
This is contained in a statement signed by Turaki Hassan Adamu Dogaras media aide made available to Newsmen in Bauchi.
He said “The duo, accompanied by a former Deputy Governor of Kogi state Simon Achuba met separately with Former military president General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida in his hilltop residence in Minna, Niger State and former Head of State General Abdusalami Abubakar ”.
He said, “Although the meeting was held on Monday, the details just emerged but sources close to the politicians said they were in Minna to felicitate with General IBB on the occasion of his 81st birthday anniversary and also to consult with him on their stance on the APC Muslims-Muslim ticket.”
They had recently convened a summit of the APC Northern Christian Forum in Abuja where Representatives and delegates from the 19 northern states and the Federal Capital Territory vehemently rejected the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC.
Our Correspondent reports that Babachir, Dogara and other northern Christian leaders in the APC are consulting ahead before they can take a decision on which of the Presidential candidates they will adopt and support ahead of the 2023 general elections.
