 The All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu has said that he already has a running mate for the 2023 presidential election.

Tinubu made this known while speaking to state house correspondents after being hosted by President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja, on Thursday night.

When asked who his running mate will be, the former Lagos governor replied saying, “I won’t tell you that. That is my right. It’s in my pocketbook.”

Although it’s not yet confirmed, there are speculations that he might pick a running mate from among the Northern governors that supported his ambition.

The names mentioned included governors of Kaduna, Jigawa, Kebbi, Plateau, among others.

Hailing president Buhari for a aiding a free and fair primary election, Tinubu recalled how Buhari had promised many times that he would support the democratic process.

“He promised the whole country and the world that he would build a legacy of transparency and consistency. Legacy of a level-playing ground for all the aspirants. He will be committed to democratic principles and values and he did so,” explained Mr Tinubu. “He didn’t endorse anybody. He didn’t impose anybody. He did not, at any time, attempt to tinker with the process of this election to favour one tribe or the other. He was steadfast. He was trustworthy. He was dependable. He was a leader.

The APC presidential candidate was accompanied on the visit by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos and Wale Tinubu.
