2023: I’m Still Searching For My Running Mate – Tinubu


Ahead of the 2023 general election, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, on Sunday said he is still searching for his running mate.

He stated this in Abuja while delivering his keynote address at the 60th birthday celebration of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila. The ex-Lagos Governor also heaped praises on the Speaker for his contributions to his political ambition of becoming Nigeria’s President and democracy, while extolling the virtues of his Deputy, Hon Idris Wase, for being a dependable ally.

“I could see a Deputy (Wase) sitting down there too, you are very good symbols of unity, dependability, and honesty, thank you. Thank you for both of you, you’ve not rocked the boat. I will need to learn from both of you, how you made the pair work because I’m still searching for my running mate,” Tinubu said.

“What you did during my primary (APC presidential election) is a story for another day. I’ve spent more time, too many times and people might be bored, they might be envious too, they might be jealous. I won a landslide, I thank you.

  1. The reason Nigerian politicians are unfit is this. They wanted to be president but not prepared.The moment you’re nominated by your party you should hit the ground running: 1, Know who’s gonna be your running mate like it’s done in the civilised world. Some of these people went to school outside Nigeria, US, England, France, they know how things are done there,but it begs my imagination they don’t pratice as it’s done there. What’s is the point studying there? 2, Now! like president Buhari, he’s already going for medical,why can’t these people build first class hospital in their country as done outside Nigeria. Y’all remember the Ekweremadus? If Tinubu is not fit medically he should pick a healthier person in case the unexpected happens. A healthy Nation is what Nigeria need. If Tinubu won he should be able to make Nigeria great again.
