A group, Tinubu Support Organisation, has endorsed the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, as the best choice of running mate for the All Progressives Congress’ presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The TSO said it arrived at the decision after its consultative meeting with critical stakeholders of the APC in the North-West geopolitical zone of the country.
The group noted that the APC had many outstanding individuals among its leaders that could serve as Tinubu’s running mate but the North-West, as the single largest voting bloc in Nigeria, should be allowed to produce the next Vice President.
The Director-General of the Tinubu Support Organisation, Aminu Suleiman, while briefing newsmen in Kaduna on Monday, said the choice of running mate was a critical success factor for the victory of Tinubu.
“After due consultation with critical stakeholders, especially in the North-West, it is of the fact that El-Rufai is Asiwaju’s best choice for Vice President,” Suleiman said.
According to him, the Tinubu Support Organization was working tirelessly for the election of Tinubu as the next President of Nigeria, adding that it believed that the choice of running mate was a critical success factor for the victory of party’s candidate.
