The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has named Kabiru Masari as his running mate for the 2023 elections.
This was made known to the public by APC chieftain, Kabiru Faskari, during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today aired on Friday.
Faskari explained that picking Kabiru Masari, who hails from Katsina State, does not violate the country’s laws as against the clamour for a Muslim/Christian APC ticket.
The APC, it is believed is putting Kabiru as a placeholder to beat the deadline given by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for presidential candidates to submit the names of their running mates.
INEC had given a Friday, June 17th, deadline for the submission of the names.
