APC presidential primary: Tinubu, Osibanjo, Amaechi make the new list



By Anita Godfrey

Following fresh deliberation of the APC national caucus in the ongoing presidential primary, the party has trimmed down its presidential aspirants who would participate at the primary to a list of three which include Bola Tinubu, Yemi Osibanjo and Amaechi.

According to a report quoting Senator Kabiru Gaya (Kano South said: “Well, we are still at the process. We know during conventions like this, decision are taken at the last minute and when done at the last minute, people accept that decision.

“Yes, we are trying to trim down. All that we know is that the candidate at the presidency should go to the south. And as it is now, it is going to the south, so that we can have a northern vice-president.

“If we don’t agree on one person, atleast two or three persons will go to poll. The party wants the aspirants contesting to be reduced to two or even one.

“The two are Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice-president Yemi Osinbajo, so it comes down to the South West. The party would not simply say they’ve dropped a candidate.

“When the process begins, the candidate will mount the podium and tell us if they are stepping down, and who they are stepping down for.”
