Ahead of the 2023 general election, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has picked Alhaji Kabir Ibrahim Masari as his running mate.

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress  (APC), Tinubu reportedly submitted Masari’s name as his running mate on Wednesday, June 15.

Masari hails from Malumfashi/Kafur Constituency in Katsina State, home state of President Muhammadu Buhari.

With this, the APC will be presenting a Muslim-Muslim candidacy for the 2023 Presidential election; a move that will attract mixed reactions in the country.

According to a source at the APC National Secretariat: ”Yes, it is confirmed. Tinubu has submitted the name of Alhaji Labor Ibrahim Masari as his running mate for the Presidency.

”The move is to meet the statutory requirement and beat Friday’s deadline by INEC for parties to presidential candidates to submit the names of their deputies,” the source revealed.

Meanwhile, stakeholders in the APC say Masari’s selection is a holding nomination to meet INEC’s Friday deadline; with a new name to be submitted afterward.

Tinubu is believed to still be consulting widely for a suitable deputy from the North.
