I’m still searching for a running mate –Tinubu


Tinubu, yesterday, said he was still searching for a running mate. The former Lagos State governor, who spoke at the public presentation of the book: “Mr Speaker” in honour of Femi Gbajabiamila, on the occasion of his 60th birthday, however, did not say to what extent he had gone in the search.

Director of Media and Communications, Bola Ahmed Tinubu Campaign Organisation, Mr. Bayo Onanuga, in a chat with Daily Sun, confirmed that Tinubu is still consulting.


He said the APC presidential candidate cannott do the selection alone.

“Tinubu isn’t having any issues with Northern APC governors or in any fix. He’s consulting with the party and will decide soon. So, there’s no problem at all,” he said.

APC spokesman, Felix Morka, did not respond to calls or a message from our correspondent on the issue.


Meanwhile, Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, has dismissed reports of abandoning the state to lobby for the vice presidential slot in Lagos.

His media aide, Makut Macham, said he had never been desperate for any elective or political position.

“If God says he will be the next vice president Nigeria, nobody can stop it. It is up to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the APC family to decide. Lalong together with his colleagues have done their part in insisting that power goes to the South. Let everyone remember that it is God who gives power to whomsoever he pleases. No amount of paid propaganda can change anything. Head or tail, Lalong wins,” he said.

He also refuted the claim that the governor was spending billions of the state’s funds for the said endeavour.


He said the story was “anchored completely on a fathom anonymous source that provided wonderfully packaged fiction and lies claiming that Governor Simon Lalong abandoned governance in Plateau State and relocated to Lagos in search of being nominated as Asiwaju Tinubu’s running mate.”

He said Lalong has not been to Lagos in the last couple of months, the last, being the inauguration of the Dangote Fertilizer Plant and new Murtala Mohammed International Airport Terminal by President Muhammadu Buhari and attended by many governors.

“We wonder where the so-called “source” got his imagination from about Governor Lalong relocating to Lagos, but could not provide the date, time, mode of movement or address where he allegedly relocated to in Lagos. Of course, he cannot provide such details because they do not exist even in his fictional contraption.”
