This Is An Insult On Nigerians – Middle Belt Youths React As Tinubu Picks A Fellow Muslim As VP
The Forum of Middle Belt Youth Presidents has described the adoption of the Muslim/Muslim presidential ticket by the All Progressives Congress as an insult on Nigerians and a slap to the North.
The President of the Forum, Terrence Kuanum in a statement yesterday stated that the Middle Belt youths were utterly shocked, disappointed and saddened by the choice.
Recall that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos State and presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress has announced a fellow Muslim, former Governor of Borno State, Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate.

Reacting to the development, Terrence Kuanum stated that it is frightening that a party that prides itself on a progressive one could neglect the yearnings of Nigerians.
