Tinubu May Settle For Ibrahim Masari As Tension Mounts On APC by dre11(m): 6:53am On Jun 25, 2022
All appears not to be too well within the ranks of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over the final choice of the party for an acceptable running mate to its Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. This is as a result of the emergence of several camps within the APC said to be jostling for the position of running mate to the former Lagos State governor.

Sources within the party told Saturday Telegraph that Tinubu might consider making the stand-in candidate, Alhaji Ibrahim Masari, as his final choice to run with him at next year’s presidential poll. A native of Katsina, Masari is a former National Welfare Secretary of the APC during the time of the Comrade Adams Oshiomhole- led National Working Committee of the party. Another source who is close to Tinubu told our correspondent that Tinubu’s choice of Masar came as a form of securing the support and buy-in of President Muhammadu Buhari to the Presidential aspiration of the National Leader of the APC next year.

“I can tell you that there is tension within the party (APC) over the choice of the running mate to the presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. I can confirm that to you,” the source who pleaded not to be mentioned, said. According to the source, numerous camps have emerged all jostling for the slot now because of the window that the APC has to substitute Masari’s name with another person. “Camps have emerged and all of them are doing all within their power to ensure that they clinch the slot,” the source said, adding that a series of meetings have been taking place within and outside Abuja, the nation’s capital.

He (the source) added that no fewer than four Northern governors elected are in the race to pair up with Tinubu and that they (the governors) are lobbying and deploying their foot soldiers with a view to achieving their aim. According to the source, three of the governors are from the North West and one from the North Central, adding that three former governors as well serving top government officials are also in contention for the slot.

The source added that the heat generated by the fierce contestation from gladiators in the party prompted Tinubu to issue a statement via his media office last weekend to say that he has submitted the name of his preferred choice to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). “As stipulated by the electoral law and Independent National Electoral Commission guidelines and timetable, the standard bearer of the All Progressives Congress, HE Asíwájú Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has returned his duly completed nomination forms to INEC. The forms were returned on Wednesday June 15, two days ahead of schedule.

“We wish to reiterate that HE Asíwájú Tinubu stands ready to contest the February 25, 2023 presidential election to deliver progressive good governance to our people,” the statement read in part. Confirming the development that Tinubu might stick to the choice in a telephone chat with our correspondent during the week, one of the aides of the former governor stated that “With the way things stand today, Asiwaju will be left with no other choice than to stick with his choice of Masari.”

Providing insight on why his principal decided to pick Masari, the source said, “It is simply to curry the support of President Muhammadu Buhari and nothing more,” adding that the move has paid off. The source cited the rapprochement between Buhari and Tinubu as an indication that Masari seems likely to become the final choice of the party. While Buhari has recently openly stated that the former Lagos governor was his preferred candidate, Tinubu on the other hand has praised the Daura- born leader for his neutrality during the presidential primaries of the party last month.

Even without VP Tinubu has already won this coming election.
Obi with atiku and Kwankwaso as VPs can't win any election in this country. We all know why.

PETER OBI IS NOT YOUR PAINS!

The families of Abuja-Kaduna train attack are not interested in Peter Obi's lies. They are looking for money to pay ransome for their loved ones' release.

The aggrieved families of Nigerians killed by Bandits in Kaduna, Kastina, Niger, Zamfara are not interested in Peter Obi's campaign. They think of govt that failed them.

Buhari's family don't care about Peter Obi's lies because in the last 7 years, they lived the best life can offer. Till today, nothing is telling us how Yusuf acquired his multi-million Naira bike.

When you get to the market, present to them Peter Obi's lies so that the prices of goods reduce. Inflation has nothing to do with Peter Obi's political ambitions.

Because Nigeria politics don't follow due processes.


To come out and vote is just an exercises for Nigerians that are already a slave to the slave masters.

This time their plans to install Tinubu on Nigerians will not work.

PETER OBI IS FAKE.
He has been the minister of petroleum since 2015 and NNPC is the most profitable petrochemical industry in the world far ahead of Saudi Aramco.

Pete Obi is fake.
He took over the leadership of Nigeria with N200 to $1. Today Naira has appreciated to N620 to $1. Since 2015, Nigeria has not experienced recession.

Peter Obi is fake.
In 7 years, he runs the most incorruptible government in the world. No single corruption allegation against any govt official - babachir lawal, Buratai, Ahmed Idris

Peter Obi is fake.
North East and North West are the safest places in Nigeria. Kastina has become a tourist haven. No insurgents.

Peter Obi is so fake.
He has resolved ASUU demands and put an end to strike actions. Nigerian universities never embarked on strike action since 1983.

Peter Obi is so fake.
He pulled 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in 5 years. Yes, you heard me.
In 2015, a loaf of bread was N300. Today is N80, Petrol was N85 now N50. He settled all our foreign debts. We now have the highest foreign reserve in the world.
Peter Obi Mismanagement of Nigeria

Has no choice.

Bubu's voter bank probably won't agree for a Northern minority..whatever the religion....so, to calm them down, he has to choose someone from far Nawth.

At the end, the Middle Belt is where the battle is at. So, let them fight it out.

If he likes let him settle with El rufai. He'll never be the president with his Muslim Muslim presidential ambition. Notwithstanding that Buhari chose a christian as his vice, the christians in the country are being persecuted, how much more when two corrupt muslims rule.
