Kabiru Faskari, a chieftain of The All Progressives Congress (APC) says Kabir Masari is the running mate to Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the party, for the 2023 elections.
Faskari said this on Friday in an interview with Channels Television.
Masari was the party’s welfare secretary when Adams Oshiomhole, former Edo governor, was the national chairman of the party.
“Ibrahim Kabiru Masari is our vice-presidential nominee. He was the welfare secretary of the APC under Oshiomhole. He is a well-known politician. His name has been submitted,” the APC chieftain said.
“He qualifies as veteran in terms of politics because he joined politics from the onset. He began as a member of the PDP. He is young. He represents the youths and is grounded in politics because he was even a national official of the APC and he is quite close with the presidential candidate.“He has been with him for a very long time. I believe it is a very informed decision to put out his name.”
Meanwhile, according to a statement by Tunde Rahman of the Tinubu campaign office on Friday, the APC presidential candidate has submitted his nomination form to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
