- A contributor to the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said proposing a running mate for Bola Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election was too early.
- Tunde Rahman said her director still had intense consultations with key political players on the possibility of running for president
- Rahman said that until consultations are over and Tinubu declares himself as president, it is only when the question of a running mate may be relevant.
All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader Bola Tinubu said it was too early to start speculating on who his running mate might be in the much-anticipated 2023 presidential election.
The Punch reports that Tinubu made the disclosure through his media assistant, Tunde Rahman, after Tinubu Support Group chief executive Abdulmumin Jibrin said having a Muslim / Muslim ticket for the 2023 presidency doesn’t matter.

Jibrin had recently said that the religion of a president and his vice could not determine the quality of work they would put in the service of Nigerians.
However, in his reaction, Tinubu’s assistant, it would be premature to discuss the running mate issue when, in the truest sense of the word, his principal has yet to publicly declare his interest in running for president.
Rahman said the national leader of the APC is still engaging in intensive consultations with political actors across the country on his ambition to run for the number one seat in the country.
He added that Tinubu was in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria, for private meetings with some of these stakeholders on the matter.
“I think we shouldn’t take the plunge. When he makes this statement, other things will follow. Until he does, I will advise against speculating on his presidential couple. “

A group from the south-east had described Tinubu as a good man who deserves to be elected president of Nigeria.
The group said Tinubu is a detribalized Nigerian who has built a strong human capital team since his tenure as governor of Lagos State.
The Southeastern group also urged Bola Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos state, to join the race for the highly anticipated 2023 presidential election.

Bishop Leonard Umunna, a pastor based in Lagos, has said he fully supports Tinubu in his speculative quest to become President of Nigeria in 2023.
The cleric who said he prophesied Tinubu taking office as governor of Lagos said he wouldn’t be as bad as most of the country’s leaders if he became president.
Bishop Umma, however, issued a warning that he spoke on the basis of his personal assessment because God had not spoken to him about it.
