APC Primaries: Governors present five names to Buhari, including Osinbajo, Tinubu, and three others

The governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have allegedly given the names of five presidential candidates to President Muhammadu Buhari for him to choose from. 

According to the Report, the governors submitted the names in the early hours of Tuesday, claiming a “trusted source.” 

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Governor Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti State), Rotimi Amaechi, former Minister of Transportation, and Governor Dave Umahi were among the names mentioned, according to the source (Ebonyi State).

After meeting with the President, the governors announced that they would return to the mansion to meet with the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) and other stakeholders.  

“They picked one from South-East, one from South-South and three from South-West geopolitical zones in line with their position that power should shift to the South,” he said. 

He said the president is expected to pick from the list. 

The presidential primary of the party was held today. The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan was named as the consensus candidate by the National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu. This was, however, punctured by the presidency.
