Eight Names Tipped As Tinubu’s Running Mate

AS national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu, savors his victory at the presidential primary, and the party is said to be in a dilemma over who to pick as his running mate for the 2023 election.

Various caucuses in the party are reportedly behind the push for eight names as likely preferred choice as running mate.

No fewer than six camps in the APC in the North are backing separate individuals, including serving and former state governors, as well as ex-ministers who played key roles at the conventions that produced the current APC national officers and the just-concluded presidential primary in Abuja.

The eight names that have so far emerged included a leading critic of the APC federal administration.

All the names that have been thrown up are Governors Babagana Zulum (Borno), Nasir el-Rufai (Kaduna), Abubakar Badaru (Jigawa), Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano) and Samuel Lalong (Plateau); former governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima; former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Honourable Yakubu Dogara and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha.
