LAGOS – Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has turned down a proposal to pick either Senate President, Ahmad Lawan and Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello as his running mate, sources in the party informed Daily Independent on Wednesday.

Our correspondent gathered that both Lawan and Bello who contested the APC presidential primary with Tinubu earlier this month have been lobbying President Muhammadu Buhari and other stakeholders to prevail on the former Lagos state governor to choose them as his running mate.

While Tinubu won the primary with 1,271 votes, Lawan polled 152 votes while Yahaya Bello got 47 votes.

Our source, a former Minister in the South-Western part of the country said though Tinubu has no issues with picking a Muslim as his running mate, he flatly rejected both of them as they are direct contestants with him and they have their minds set on becoming president.

“Yes both men (Lawan and Bello) have been making moves to be nominated as vice-presidential candidates but I can assure you that Asiwaju is not considering them at all. He met with President Buhari shortly before his trip to France and I strongly believe that must have been part of their discussions as both men have been lobbying the president to prevail on Asiwaju to consider them”.

“ Even those of who are associates of Asiwaju Tinubu are against their choice as both of them are not strong personalities that can bring the needed votes in the North” he said.
Tinubu who used Ibrahim Masari as a placeholder in his nomination form to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) stated last weekend at the 60th birthday of the Speaker of the House of Reps, Femi Gbajabiamila that he is still in a search of a running mate.

Tinubu is a very wise man. Someone with such political might, strength and acumen can't pick those weyreys as his running mate. He is the yardstick when it comes to measuring politicians strides and wisdom

Nice one from Tinubu. Same thing Atiku did to Wike. Smart men. Haters will come here and abuse them, call them names but in their innermost heart, they wish these men were their fathers and relatives. You guys should hustle oo and stop saying vote PO for the future of your children. I bet you, 10,000 Peter Obi can't change the future of your children with your kinda mindset, you will still remain poor and pass it to your generation. Leave envy and hatred, celebrate successful men so you will be successful.

I see Tinubu picking Guanduje, I see Kwankwaso and Guanduje fighting for Kano votes, I see Kwankwaso winning Kano.

The rest of the visions are cloudy, I'll reveal more as time goes by.

This I have seen.
