Nigerians React As Tinubu Fails To Reveal Name Of Running Mate Summitted To INEC



2023: Tinubu Should Not Make The Mistake Of A Muslim-Muslim Ticket - APC Chieftain

The 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu on Friday confirmed that he has submitted his duly completed nomination forms to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

According to the statement, the forms were submitted on Wednesday, two days ahead of the deadline given by INEC for the submission.

“As stipulated by the electoral law and INEC guidelines and timetable, the standard-bearer of the All Progressives Congress, HE Asíwájú Bola Tinubu, has returned his duly completed nomination forms to INEC,” a statement issued on Friday from the Tinubu Media Office by Tunde Rahman read.

Many Nigerians had waited for the moment Tinubu would reveal his running mate but were surprised when the former Lagos State Governor didn’t reveal the identity of his running mate.

It is however been speculated that a placeholder was named in the form submitted to INEC so as to be able to beat the stipulated deadline.

By implication, such a name may be replaced before the final list of candidates and their running mates are published by INEC.

This has generated several reactions with some Nigerians taking to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to share their opinions.
