The Presidential Candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has picked and submitted the name of Katsina State-born Kabir Ibrahim Masari, a member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of the party as his running mate.
This is in a bid to beat the deadline by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the submission of names for the 2023 general election.
It was however gathered that the selection stands as an interim measure as Masari will be substituted on or before August when the substantive Vice Presidential Candidate of the party emerges from the ongoing rounds of consultations on the matter.
The submission of the name of Masari is to beat the Friday, June 17, 2022 deadline stipulated by the election umpire.
