It was gathered that the North-East might produce the running mate, while the position of the Senate President would go to the South-East and North-West would produce the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Bang ala said, “The issue of this Muslim-Muslim ticket is still speculation till the next two to three days (Wednesday) when the party will unveil Asiwaju’s running mate.

“It is not enough for anybody to just come out to say the APC is fielding a Muslim VP. Nobody has mentioned that. We are still looking at a credible northerner who can be a Christian too to pair with Tinubu.”
