The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Tinubu has named Kabiru Masari as his running mate for the 2023 elections.
A chieftain of the party Kabiru Faskari said this during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday.
He explained that picking Kabiru, 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.
