Written by Ossy on July 10, 2022
Ahead of the July 17 deadline given by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for political parties to submit the lists of their candidates for the 2023 general elections, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has decided on his choice of running mate.
A highly-competent source in the Tinubu Campaign Organization who requested anonymity confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja.
The source said ‘Tinubu would make the name of the candidate public this week.’
“The vice-presidential nominee may most likely be a former governor and senator from the Northeast part of Nigeria.
“The person is also by accident of birth a Muslim, confirming what Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State said on Saturday that Tinubu had settled for a Muslim-Muslim ticket,’’ the source said. The source added that in picking the running mate, Tinubu was not thinking about religion, but about competence, exposure and intellectual depth of the candidate.
“The considerations given for the choice of a running mate were viewed by the need to choose an individual capable of working with the presidential candidate to take Nigeria to greater heights,’’ the source said.
