The All Progressives Congress (APC) has advised Muhammadu Buhari to caution his ministers and other public holders, to stop working against the presidential candidate of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
This was released in a statement signed by the deputy National Publicity Secretary, Murtala Ajaka.
APC has warned those elected on their platforms to decide between campaigning for Tinubu’s ticket or resigning their appointments from the party-led administration.
Ajaka reacted to the public display of apathy to Tinubu’s presidential candidacy by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.
The minister, in an interview with Politics Today, on Channels Television, had hesitated when asked if he would prefer endorsing his party’s candidate or Peter Obi of the Labour Party ahead of the 2023 elections.
Dodging the question, Ngige stated that he was no longer active in politics and would fancy his chances by making the choice at the ballot.
“I’m not active in politics for now because I am facing national assignment,” he said, when asked his preferred candidate between the APC’s Tinubu and the Labour Party’s Peter Obi.
“Both of them are my friends. My choice will be in the ballot box. It is a secret ballot. I shouldn’t tell Nigerians what I would do secretly,” he said.
