Barring any last-minute change,
the coast now seems clear for Edo State governor,
Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to emerge as
running mate to Major-General Muhammadu
Buhari (rtd), presidential candidate of All
Progressives Congress, APC, as the party rounds
off its series of caucus sessions today.

Following Buhari’s emergence, the party leaders
have been holding closed-door meetings in Lagos,
to consider candidates for the vice president slot.
A source at one of the meetings said to have held
at the Bourdillon residence of the party national
leader in Lagos, former Lagos Governor Bola
Tinubu, disclosed that the APC had finally resolved
to zone the position of Vice President to the South-
South region.

The top member of the party who craved
anonymity, said: “Initially, we wanted to zone the
position to the South-West but we also put into
consideration, the fact that President Jonathan is
from the South-South and it may be unwise to take
the Presidency away from the zone under the
circumstance.”

The source added that two candidates were
considered for the position, namely Edo Governor
Adams Oshiomhole, and his Rivers counterpart,
Rotimi Amaechi.

He explained that the party eventually saw the
Oshiomhole option as more attractive for about
four reasons.

“One, he is a former President of the Nigeria
Labour Congress and as such, the labour force still
see him as their leader.

“Two, he is a Christian from the Roman Catholic
sect, which accounts for the highest population of
Christians in the country.

“Again, Oshiomhole is vociferous, vocal and
articulate in persuasive prowess, unlike Buhari
who is not as such endowed with the gift of the
garb.

“And above all, Oshiomhole speaks the Hausa
language fluently as he grew up in Kaduna where
he had his early education.”

The source further disclosed that the fact that the
current national chairman of the APC, Chief John
Odigie-Oyegun is not only from the South-South
but from Edo State as with Oshiomhole, was put
into consideration at the Lagos meeting.

“We have decided that Odigie-Oyegun should step
down for the sake of Oshiomhole and it would
seem he is showing understanding on the issue,”
he stressed. The source also hinted that the South-
West will now be compensated with the position of
Senate President by the APC and that Tinubu was
preferred for the position.

He said the former Lagos governor had been
advised to consult with his wife, Senator Oluremi
Tinubu, who has already won the Lagos Central
Senatorial District’s ticket, to step down and forfeit
the ticket to her husband.

“For all I know, we are moving on; there will be no
rancour over position sharing,” the source
assured.

Beer parlor news again!

However if it turns out to be true, it is a good choice and one which the Yorubas will be comfortable with.

For me, I think it is better than Buhar/Amaechi.

I don't support ethnicity politics. It creates more division. I thought APC would be different from PDP.

Anyways anything other the Jonathan is fair enough

If Jagaban himself agrees that the position should be zoned to the SS (Edo to be precise), then I say kudos to him. Most people never believed that Jagaban will allow the slot to go to the SS considering the role he (and the entire Yorubas) played in the growth of APC. Since Jagaban was one of the people that said it should be given to Oshiomole, I believe he would also canvass the Yorubas to vote (for) APC.

Oshiomole's emergence does not mean he's the most qualified, but because the odds favour him. Fashola would have been a great choice, but that islamization tag on APC and ethno-religious Politics wouldn't allow it work. All in all, this ticket is saleable if true.

Very sad, with Okorocha's showing at the primaries, he could easily have made VP but the SE prettiness.

Oshiomole will be a better candidate than Amaechi.. At least, for the reasons mentioned above. It's true.

Nobody loves Rochas like Ndiigbo regardless of state. Rochas was tipped to be an APGA Presidential candidate. He was the second person besides Ojukwu to have that honour.


I supported Rochas in APC Presidential race even though i knew it was all about Buhari.


Politics is a game of patience and Rochas need to apply this virtue into his desire to succeed, in-other to succeed.


I still support Rochas for Gov of Imo State despite his short-comings.
