2023 Election: Masari Is My Running Mate Not Placeholder - Tinubu

Tinubu said the name of his running mate had been duly submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, as required by the law.

He was reacting to remarks by INEC’s Commissioner for Information and Voter Education, Festus Okoye, that the idea of placeholder was alien to the Nigerian constitution.

Following his emergence as presidential candidate, Tinubu had picked as his running mate.

But, there are speculations that Masari was a placeholder to allow to meet INEC’s deadline for the submission of names picked for the role of running mate.

However, speaking through his Media Aide, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu dismissed claims of Masari being a placeholder.

”Without taking issues with the INEC’s National Commissioner, I just like to state the situation as it relates to the presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“And it is that Tinubu has duly completed his nomination forms, including giving the particulars of his running mate. He has returned the completed nomination forms to INEC. He even returned the forms two days ahead of schedule.
