A member of Tinubu Campaign Organization who requested anonymity hinted to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja that the APC candidate has chosen a running mate.

The source said Tinubu would make the name of the candidate public this week.

“The vice-presidential nominee may most likely be a former governor and senator from the northeast of Nigeria.

“The person is also by accident of birth a Muslim, confirming what Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State said on Saturday that Tinubu had settled for a Muslim-Muslim ticket,’’ the source said.
