APC vice presidential slot belongs to Northeastern Christians, says Tinubu
The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has reacted to rumours alleging that he intends to pick a fellow Muslim as a running mate.
He reacted while speaking with journalists during the APC rally held Tuesday in Ekiti ahead of the forthcoming governorship election in the state.
He said the carriers of the remour were undemocratic elements that are already threatened by his imminent victory in the coming presidential poll.
When asked by journalists on his choice of a vice president, Tinubu maintained that the slot belongs to the Northeastern region and particularly the Christians, although consultations are yet ongoing as to who will be decided.
