Bayo Onanuga, spokesman of the campaign organisation, said Tinubu’s running mate can come from any geo-political zone and religion.

He said, “The vice-president can come from any region and religion. But the PGF is at liberty to pick. Up till now, we are all aware that Atiku has not chosen a VP. Yet, he was elected before him. But in our own case, it is a party affair.

“The party leaders will look at the chances and decide how they will balance a Muslim from the south, maybe with somebody that comes from north-east, north-central or from north-west. That is how it is done. I cannot circumvent the party.”

KanyiDaily had earlier reported that Bola Tinubu had pencilled down the name of Kashim Shettima, who played a critical role in his campaign, as his running mate.
