APC VP Slot: Oshiomhole Or Osinbajo May Emerge

The race for the Vice-Presidential slot of the All Progressives Congress(APC) gathered momentum immediately after the emergence of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari. Intense meetings and horse-trading has followed and a nominee is expected by Monday.


The Paradigm reliably gathered that Gen. Buhari has asked Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to choose the Vice- Presidential candidate. This is said to be a way of showing gratitude to the Ex-Lagos Governor for the maximum support of the South-west  at the primaries. It is believed Mr Tinubu delivered on his promise by delivering bloc votes for the General in the region.

Our sources confirmed that Tinubu is considering the candidature of Go. Oshiomhole of Edo State and former Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice in Lagos, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

The APC Governors have however joined the fray as consultations continue. They are alleged to have insisted that the Vice- Presidential candidate come from their ranks. This may favour Oshiomhole except the party restricts its search to the South-west as speculated.

Gov. Rotimi Amaechi though a strong contender and an ally of Gen Buhari may however not get the blessing of Tinubu for the slot.
