Before the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) deadline for parties to submit the names of their candidates for the 2023 elections, Tinubu reportedly dropped his name as a running mate.

Thursday evening, sources from Tinubu and Masari’s camp verified this to Shauntv.

The running mate of the APC Presidential Candidate is from Masari, a community in Katsina State’s Kafur Local Government Area.

He is a relative of Masari,

During the term of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as National Chairman, the running mate of the APC presidential nominee worked as the National Welfare Secretary of the ruling party.

Oshiomhole presided over the APC from 2018 to 2020.

Tinubu’s running companion was a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) member under the presidency of the late Umaru Musa Yar’Adua.

After Yardua’s death in 2010, Masari moved to the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), the party for which President Muhammadu Buhari ran in the 2011 election but lost.

Masari had worked for the president, but Yardua’s death resulted in the election being won by former president Goodluck Jonathan.

Prior to the 2015 election, the CPC merged with the APC, and Masari joined the ruling party.

He was also active in the election in which, for the first time in the country’s history, an opposition party defeated the ruling party.

According to rumours, Tinubu will replace Masari before the election, as he just dropped his candidacy to satisfy INEC’s deadline.

“Tinubu continues to consult widely over the selection of his running mate. A source stated that he will replace Masari as soon as the suitable replacement is chosen.

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar of the PDP has selected Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate for the 2023 election, which is largely viewed as a two-horse fight.
