Senator Shettima also stated that the ruling APC will disintegrate over its presidential ticket contrary to insinuation that the party was on the verge of collapse.
Senator Kashim Shettima (APC-Borno Central) has said President Muhammadu Buhari, the national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu and others will resolve the issue of zoning in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking at a two-day mid-term retreat held in Ado-Ekiti, Shettima, the immediate past governor of Borno State, stated that it was too early to talk about zoning ahead of the 2023 election.
He warned politicians to stop heating up the polity about which section of the country will secure the party’s presidential slot in 2023.
He said: “Don’t forget that our party still controls the Presidency. We have a leader and other competent leaders that can manage every crisis situation.
“At the appropriate time, our leaders will sit and take the most apt decision that will resolve the issue.
“APC is a party that is united and nothing can break us. I am confident that we will win the 2023 presidential election. APC still remains the party to beat because of the unity of purpose and togetherness as well as desire to deliver for Nigerians.
“So, I am confident and no cause for alarm, what you called controversy will be resolved in the fullest of time.”
