Former Head of State and flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2015 presidential election, Muhammadu Buhari has given party leader the prerogative to choose his running mate, according to a report by online news platform, TheCable.

Although the closeness of Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi to Buhari had made many see him as the likeliest candidate for the VP slot, but Tinubu’s work to ensure Buhari wins the primaries has made the presidential aspirant show appreciation by giving him the VP slot, leaving Amaechi out in the cold.

“Politics is not winner-takes-all. Tinubu worked round the clock to deliver a huge chunk of votes to Buhari in the primary, and it is only fair that he is honoured in return,” an aide to Buhari told the news platform.

Tinubu is yet to present disclose his choice, according to TheCable, but he is opposed to Amaechi, who is by far one of the biggest donors to Buhari’s campaign.

“If the party exco settles for a Muslim/Muslim ticket, Tinubu himself will be the number one choice. If not, then Adams Oshiomhole stands the best chance among the rest,” an APC chieftain from the Southwest told TheCable.

An announcement of the financial choice of Tinubu and the APC is expected next week.

THE SOUTHWEST WILL WORK AGAINST ANY CHOICE THAT IS NOT SOUTHWEST AND KNOWN FOR PLAYING HARD BALL, THEY MAY GO FOR A MOSLEM/MOSLEM TICKET AND THAT WILL BE THEIR GREATEST UNDOING.  THE YORUBA MUST LEARN TO COMPROMISE, OBASANJO HAD WARNED APC AGAINST A MOSLEM/MOSLEM TICKET. THEY WILL BE TAKING NIGERIANS FOR GRANTED TO THINK THAT WE ARE STILL IN THE MKO ERA, TIMES HAVE CHANGED, PLAYING THE RELIGIOUS CARD AT THIS TIME OF MISTRUST IS A BIG TURN OFF FOR MOST SOUTHERNERS AND NORTHERN MINORITIES.

I Hope Nigerians reads & learn from history's.... If Nigerias make mistake and vote for wrong candidate, that means we are going to suffer more than where we are now for another good eight year....... For any new government coming inn does not have money to meetup with country bugget.... Go and get history and read what is happening in France now, since after the government change and the new government in power could not do far better to the government left the seat..... That's a developed nation we are talking of here, this became more worst day by day.... Na Nigeria who's economy is unbalance want to try and change government means people will die of hunger on the street........ If u doubt me go and write this down or copy this comment somewhere.......... Non of all this old leaders can bring back Nigeria to is dream again, it's gone bcuz they are lack with what call wisdom...... So we need to allow this present administration to re-win the seat as we now start to prepare for youth who will take power from him in 2019 and then we can talk of better future ahead Nigeria, if not we will double our sufferness with 65% more to where we are currently..... Let's join hands together and vote for Johnatha, we all know he's a weak leader but believe honest Jona will be far better than Buhari with the state Nigeria are today.... It's better we learn from history and we do not creat more suffers for ourselves and our future..... Changing of government now will bring Nigeria backward oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo a beg all Nigerians to take heart and bear with their pains to vote for Jonathan in massive........ God bless Nigeria.
