#Nigeria2015: APC yet to pick Buhari’s running mate – Lai Mohammed

Muhammadu Buhari

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has assured Nigerians that the choice of its presidential running mate will be made within the context of the best democratic ideals, just like that of its presidential candidate.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party urged Nigerians to ignore the widespread and misleading reports in the traditional and social media about the choice of the APC presidential running mate, saying the party has yet to even meet, not to talk of picking a running mate.

It described the reports that a running mate has been picked to run with the APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, as unnecessarily sensational, downright speculative and totally misleading.

“We are using this opportunity to tell Nigerians to pray for us as we seek to pick a running mate for our presidential candidate. This is because this choice is not just for us but for all of Nigeria,” APC said

The party said everyone of the candidates who have been speculated as a running mate to Gen. Buhari is unquestionably competent to be a Vice President or even President, adding, however, that no choice has yet been made by the party.

“We are glad with the feedback we have received from Nigerians on the transparent and rancour-free manner in which our presidential primaries was organized. We are assuring Nigerians that the choice of our presidential running mate will also be guided by best democratic ideals.

“We appreciate the nationwide interest that the choice of our presidential candidate and his running mate has generated. It is a mark of the confidence that Nigerians repose in us. We assure that we will not disappoint our compatriots who have seen our party as the agent of the change they so much crave,” it said.

National Publicity Secretary

    Yeye dey smell–I shall only vote for APC if they field in a Christian-Christian candidature or Christian-Mohammedan candidates–naiijas have said no to Islamic jihadism, we reject the sharia advocate ati Buhari

    • tundemash

      The f00l that could not even guarantee Odumegwu Ojukwu a senatorial ticket within just Anambra there is talking about voting for APC only on religous consideration. Was Odumegwu Ojukwu also a Sharia advocate ?
      Buhari was such a sharia advocate he couldn’t make Nigeria join OIC (Organisation of Islamic Countries) when he was a supreme leader ?
      You are a religious bigot high on a poor man’s opium (religion).

      Concentrate on petting your Dumbo to show up for Presidential debate this time around. We would not accept him debating Dbaj this time.
      Go check Dumbo’s acceptance speech page (http://blogs dot premiumtimesng dot com/?p=166300); only 3 comments so far. You are e-rats are so rattled by GMB’s nomination, you do not even have the time to read Dumbo’s speech.

      • TRUTH MASTER

        Nice one!

        • Femi Johnson

          You must be TundeMESS himself. He is the only one who will call comments full of insults and abuse ‘nice one’.
          Unless you are also a gutter lowlife..or a retard..

          • tundemash

            It is quite rich from you calling Truth Master a retard in the same statement where you think my post was insulting. HYPOCRITE , why not come to equity with clean hands ? I guess you are now a gutter lowlife too since you gave as much; NUMSKULL !

      • Oleku

        I don’t know anyone who goes by the name Dumbo, I only know a jihadist, an extremist who has repeatedly call for sharia law and I can also confirm to you that he will be defeated squarely in next year general elections, he’s a serial loser and history will repeat itself again. You can go and declare your Oodua Republic or better still Wazo republic come February 2015-nonsense

        • tundemash

          are these the reasons you couldn’t vote in Odumegwu Ojukwu in a senatorial election? If you couldn’t do that, why should i worry about your rant. Keep getting high on the religion drug and do not forget to put some comments in on Dumbo’s acceptance speech page please and let him have some recognition.

        • Ahmad Suleiman

          Mr.Oleku hatred and naiveness never yield a good reason. the question here is why do you hate sharia? forget about GMB and the politics just answer my question.

    • Progress

      Do you and others so brainwashed know that this Buhari that u ignorantly call an extremist marry her daughter to an IBO man? How many Ibo will bless their daughter wish to marry a Muslim Hausa or Fulani man? I salute that gesture o, cos for me e go difficult small o.

      Buhari favourite and last daughter, AMINA is married to Col. GODDY UDECHUKWU from Uke in Idemili South Local Government of Anambra state. Amina converted to Christianity upon marriage and became an active and devoted
      Anglican.

      • TRUTH MASTER

        Don’t mind those who revel in stereotyping people when they themselves act on primordial basis

    • TRUTH MASTER

      Please dont bother voting under this silly condition….and the APC will not even know you did not vote!

  • adnoy

    You’re damn wrong. It’s only you oleburuku and other myopic pdp aplogists that have based this election on religion. The rest of the millions of Nigerians who you purpottedly speak for, have based it on who can deliver the anticipated change that Nigeria deserve.
