 The All Progressive Congress APC, presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and his counterpart in the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, on Wednesday, began the search for their running mates.

Also, the probability that his running mate may be a Muslim from the North enhances the chances of the APC beating the main opposition People’s Democratic Party PDP, which has a northerner, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, as it’s candidate.

The spokesman for the Tinubu Campaign organisation, Mr. Bayo Onanuga, said the APC Presidential candidate would meet the APC governors whom he said would pick the former Lagos State governors running mate.

It was gathered that Tinubu would meet party leaders, including the National Chairman, Senator Abdullah, Adamu, before the end of the week.

As Tinubu began the search for his running mate, Atiku on Wednesday held a closed door meeting with the PDP governors in Abuja with a view to picking the party’s Vice Presidential candidate.

Also, on Monday, Northern governors had insisted on power shift to the South despite the National chairman endorsement of the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan from the North-East as the party’s consensus candidate.

Tinubu,  in his acceptance speech after his victory, said those who did not support him should not be afraid.  He further stated,  “Our teeming youth population is our nation’s greatest asset. We will create jobs for our youth from the Zamfara and Osun gold deposits to the vast agricultural lands across the country. We will create new opportunities in the Fintech sector, the creative and entertainment industries, digital skills and other areas.”

There were strong indications on Wednesday that both Tinubu and Atiku had started searching for their running mates ahead of the Independent National Electoral Commission’s June 17 deadline for parties to submit their candidates’ lists.
