President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmad Lawan has left tongues wagging on social media after referring to former Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Senator Representing Yobe North Senatorial District took to his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday morning to share photos of his meeting with APC stakeholders, including Shettima, who is the running mate to the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Met yesterday with stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress from Yobe State, including the presidential candidate of our great party, the APC, Senator Kashim Shettima,” Lawan tweeted.
Nigerians who saw the tweet before it was deleted raised alarm.
Some wondered if Lawan was passing a message the Nigerian public should know as they asked if the APC only made Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos State, a placeholder with Shettima in mind as their primary candidate.
Below is Lawan’s tweet, now deleted.
