He will probably be replaced by the runner up during the primaries. If he does after winning, the vice assumes office.

But then, Tinubu have to run till the end

A vote for Tinubu is a vote for Shettima's presidency. Buhari is even healthier than the pee pee drug lord.

You're right he's already running to his grave as you can see.

Here you have your answered.

Even if he wins and dies without being sworn in, the first runner-up takes over.

A similar event happened in Kogi State in 2015 and threw the country into confusion.

Something might be behind it, but that won't stop the others to move on.

The vice will only take over if he has been declared the winner of the election.
If he has not, the person that came second during the primary takes over.

If what you mean is the runner-up (the second in the party primary like Rotimi Amaechi of the APC or Nyesom Wike of the PDP), the deceased's vice or deputy will go and mourn with his oga's family and forget about the position cheesy

If the second runner-up take over, will he still use the vice or deputy ?

If the presidential candidate dies before election date, the second runner is expected to take over ( Competent party should be able to hide the News of the Death till after the Election if they are not happy with the second runner), , but if the candidate dies during or after the election then the vice can take over.

On this sensitive issue INEC respect party decision


The options available

1. Second runner up

2. Vice candidate

3. Fresh primary


Any of the options above the party wish for if the candidate dies during or after the election, INEC will adopt it, using Kogi State as case study .

Between Obi that is relatively young, still visits the gym, travels across Nigeria in one day, looks healthy and clean and Tinubu, an old man that is suffering from Parkinson disease (a degenerative brain sickness), suffers from rectum and bladder sickness that makes him to pee and shiit on himself uncontrollably, who can't walk without being held by the hand, who do you think is likely to drop dead any moment?!

To whom brain is given, sense is expected!!

Now that makes it even scarier. Imagine having someone like Shitima, a known Boko Haram patron as president. It would be same as having a Taliban regime shocked shocked

You will die before Peter Obi becomes your president next year. You and Sam Omatsaye who you celebrated on his "obituary" jargon. Idiotic hypocrite. You get back what you dish out.

See the case of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.
The flag bearer won the election and died. Bello from nowhere emerged as governor
