I’m Supposed To Be The Vice-President, But Gave Osinbajo My Slot – Tinubu

Former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, has recounted how he nominated Professor Yemi Osinbajo as President Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate in 2015.

Tinubu, while speaking with members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital on Thursday, said Buhari had before the election approached him to be his running mate, because he had failed with every other person he picked as running mates in his earlier attempts.

The presidential aspirant stressed that it was former Senate President Bukola Saraki that thwarted the plan by playing the Muslim-Muslim ticket gambit.

He said that he single-handedly nominated Osinbajo to occupy the post originally given to him.

  1. What is he saying. How can you be Vice President when the President is a Muslim. Please say the fact. The slot was not given to you to chose someone and you wanted to be the Vice President but Bukky Saraki said both the President and Vice President can’t be both Muslim, that the Christian people will not vote for APC. That was why he did not want Bukky Saraki to be come the Senate President.
