Muslim-Muslim Ticket: Our legal adviser has not resign, APC clarifies

The All Progressive Congress (APC) on Monday denied its legal adviser resigned membership of the ruling party as reported in some quarters.

The ruling party stated this in a statement by its spokesperson, Felix Morka, while reacting to the reported resignation of Daniel Bwala, a chieftain of party who resigned his membership on Sunday.

Mr Bwala announced his withdrawal on Twitter, Sunday evening, shortly after Bola Tinubu, candidate of the APC named a fellow Muslim and former Borno governor, Kashim Shettima, as his running mate for next year’s presidential election.

“Our attention has been drawn to a false and misleading report circulating on some media platforms that the National Legal Adviser of the APC has resigned,” the statement reads.

“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 erroneous reported,” it clarified.
