At least 11 northern governors met with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja on Thursday.
The meeting was held amid the search for Tinubu’s running mate in the 2023 presidential election.
As earlier reported by ionigeria.com, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has asked the presidential and governorship candidates of the 18 registered political parties to pick and submit the lists of their running mates in the next eight days.
Being a Southerner, Tinubu’s running mate is expected to come from the north.
On Wednesday, Bayo Onanuga, spokesman for Tinubu Campaign Organisation, told Trust TV that the Vice-Presidential slot of the APC for the 2023 election has been ceded to the governors.
Onanuga said: “When Tinubu met the progressives governors at their forum, he told them that ‘you are going to be the people who will pick my running mate’.”
