There are speculations that powerful politicians in the presidency and the All Progressives Congress are planning to pair the former Governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun, to run as Vice-President with the Attorney-General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami as the President Muhammadu Buhari’s successor in 2023.
According to SaharaReporters, the ruling party are planning to play the card of their being relatively young before Nigerians.
It was disclosed that the cabal with the ongoing membership revalidation exercise and the ongoing probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, has weakened the influence of the APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu.
“Ibikunle Amosun has been pencilled down as Malami’s running mate under our party. APC validation exercise is near completion and it effectively takes away the party finally from Tinubu. His game in the APC is undone as the EFCC is set to hunt him down.”
“Talks about zoning to the South are presently being reconsidered among the governors. You recall Kogi State Governor Bello saying over the weekend that there was nothing like zoning in the APC constitution. Gradually, they (the governors) will make the zoning talk unpopular,” a source revealed.
In another development, officials at the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) are in panic mode after records relating to former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu’s asset declaration suddenly disappeared from the storage facility that has held them for years.
The disappearance of the case file might frustrate corruption investigation into Tinubu’s asset by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
