Tinubu name Masari as his running mate to meet the INEC deadline



Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate, has named Kabir Ibrahim Masari as his running mate in order to meet INEC’s deadline of Friday, June 17.

A little background check on Kabir Ibrahim Masari reveal that he hails from Katsina state, the same state as the incumbent president.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s kinsman from his home state, Kabir Ibrahim Masari has been described by many as a “place holder until party stakeholders agree on a viable vice-presidential candidate for the 2023 elections”

Tinubu and the APC made the move to comply with the law and beat the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) deadline for political parties to submit the names of presidential candidates and their running mates before the general elections.

The race is on for the other political parties with presidential candidates to nominate their vice to beat the stipulated time under the law.
