Following speculations that made the news all through yesterday about the choice for vice-presidential candidate by the the All Progressives Congress, Muhammadu Buhari.
APC’s Alhaji Lai Mohammed has come out to clear the air, he said the party has not even met to decide who the person will be.
“We haven’t even met,” Mohammed said, dismissing a report that the party had picked the Rivers States Governor, Mr. Chibuike Amaechi, as Buhari’s running mate.
Mohammed told The Punch newspaper that picking a vice-presidential candidate would require wide consultation, but said the party would announce the person next week.
“What you are reading now is the handiwork of mischief makers. No one had been picked as Buhari’s running mate but we will pick and announce next week,” he said.
And sources closes to him said he has been locked up in wide consultation on finding a right running mate that will Buhari’s electoral chances in the February election.
Religion will be a very decisive factor in arriving at a choice, sources say. And since Buhari is a muslim, only a Christian VP will emerge.
