Aliyu said that the Forum was not sponsored by any of the governors. “We thank God that our Forum is made up of several people. We are not doing this with the permission of Zulum or El Rufai, but as concerned party members, we know what will happen if we do not present the right person as a vice presidential candidate,” he said. Aliyu said that if the party decides not to be “wise”, the main opposition party, the People’s Democratic Party’s PDP candidate Atiku Abubakar, will “easily” win the election. He said: “If we are passionate about victory, then we should opt for Zulum. But if we just want to run and lose in next year’s general election, then we can field whoever we want to field as a running mate. “We are passionate about the success of the party, so our resolution visited the party headquarters last week and we discussed with the national president and we clearly told him that the only option for APC if we really want to get massive votes from the north is Campo Zulum”, said.
