What Happens If Tinubu’s VP Placeholder, Masari, Goes Rogue? by dre11(m): 5:24am On Jun 19, 2022
What happens if Kabiru Masari, the All Progressives Congress (APC) vice presidential placeholder decides to go rogue? That is one question that has been agitating the minds of not a few discerning political observers since the news that Masari’s name was submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) broke.

Tinubu had defeated former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and 12 others to clinch the APC sole presidential ticket at the party’s national convention.

Since after the presidential primary, he has been making consultations for a running mate. In order to beat the INEC’s June 17 deadline for the submission of running mates of all the presidential candidates, on Friday, the APC presidential candidate submitted the name of a Katsina State politician, Kabiru Masari, as his vice presidential placeholder until he gets a more suitable choice, most likely a sitting governor from the North.

Not much is known about Masari other than the fact that he is a politician in Katsina, the home state of President Muhammadu Buhari.

But after he was announced as a placeholder running mate, Masari started trending on social media.

It is not clear why it is taking too long to get a competent and sellable candidate for the post of the vice president.

But a source close to the APC presidential candidate said: “Asiwaju will use that time to continue consulting with the party, governors and the president. He is taking his time and doesn’t want to rush it. He just wants to carry everybody along. Even the elections will take place in 2023 and the campaign wouldn’t start until September. The window period is still long. There is no need to rush anything about it.

“I think we have fulfilled our own part by submitting the name as required before the window of INEC deadline closes. He is not really a surrogate per se. He is just holding forth. The electoral act stipulates that candidates have the window period to substitute up till sometime in August.”

But since the name of Masari was submitted, many analysts and observers have been wondering and imagining what would if the placeholder decides to go rogue. Won’t that be serious trouble for the APC?

Multiple factor authentification

1. Swear on the Quran
2. A signed copy of his resignation will already be signed
3. He must have begun someone who has proven his loyalty time and time again
4. Ask Machina of Yobe against Lawan.

Nigerian politicians are not people who leave much to chance in situations like this.

Good to go

He fits the description and will fly.

He is from the North (Katsina, Buhari's state) and member of the APC....he will get the northern sentiment....

You should be worried for Doyin Okugbe if he refuses to withdraw....he has no political value, it will also mean two-southerners on one ticket plus he is a Christian just like Obi. = Christian/Christian Ticket?

How about that?

He won't even dare it. And even if he does, and the party eventually wins. The Saraki treatment awaits him.

The fact remains that Tinubu is dangling in Serious Dilemma believe it or not. Whether he decided to Use a Christian or Muslim Vice is a Problem. If he Chooses a Muslim in this Current Nigeria that Killing because of Blasphemy is trending, CAN will blow hot and he will be loosing vote from some critical States.

On the other hand, if he Chooses a Christian, some Core Northern Muslim People will feel Islam isn't represented in his government since they see Yoruba Muslim as not a complete Believer but an unbeliever(Arne).

APC is at the Bream of Collapsing in winning 2023 presidential election if you tell yourself the truth.

Without mincing words, I am surprise that the ruling party APC submitted a 'Place Holder'.

It gave credence to the rumour that APC has no plan for governance, but only to grab power. How can a ruling party be devoid of plans for smooth and successful transition of power in line with the law made by majority of their members in the National assembly? More so, it beats my imagination that a Politician with 'Life time ambition' of ruling Nigeria is without a plan for a candidate he will pursue such an ambition with having studied the peculiar nature of Nigeria politics for years, known his major opponent a week ahead.

I justify the position of Labour Party on a Place Holder because their Presidential Candidate, Mr Peter Obi emerged barely five days after joining the party hence the need for more time to strategize. BAT made it obvious in his viral video that it is the turn of Yoruba land and in Yoruba land, it is his turn. Forgotten to understand that a running mate is needed to fulfil the so call life ambition is a question on his preparedness for the job he is aspiring for. Issue of Muslim/Muslim or Muslim/Christian ticket is never an excuse owing to intrigues prior to 2015 election he was very part of.

Atiku Abubakar and PDP has shown truly that he knew and was prepared for what he is aspiring for.

Place Holder or no Place Holder, 2023 is becoming more interesting. The Third force is gaining more popularity.

I have thought of that too. What also happens if they intentionally made him a placeholder to achieve their Muslim Muslim ticket and make it look as if he insisted on not stepping down at the end.

Keep dreaming. Northerners are well known for their loyalty, at least more than averagely. You guys should be more worried about if Doyin Okupe goes rogue and refuses to withdraw and be substituted. Okupe that is Atiku's boy. Okupe that is open to the highest bidder like Wike, or Okupe that is "ewedu and amala betrayal people". Obi zombies go cry grin

He was not voted for it, it's just a selection. Tinubu and APC can change him. Tinubu is the owner of the ticket for now.

He can't and won't. They come from way way back.

However, a letter of withdrawal has most probably been signed already before his name was used as placeholder.
