The primary election of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC has been concluded for the upcoming presidential election in 2023.
Former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu has emerged beating Rotimi Amaechi, Yemi Osinbajo and others. But now the issue is on the choice of running mate for Tinubu which must come from the Northern part of the country.
Earlier, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu in his opinion said that Muslim-Muslim ticket is what will do the magic for APC if they want to win the presidential election. In his opinion, it will be easier for the party to win with that arrangement than for Muslim-Christian.
One person who is against what Uzor Kalu said was Senator Binta Garba, she said that the Muslim-Muslim ticket will not augur well for the party.
Senator Garba was on Channels Television where she told political analyst, Seun Okinbaloye that she is ready and qualify to be the running mate for Tinubu.
She is from the Northern part of the country and also a Christian who has won elections in Kaduna State as well as Adamawa State.
It has been her ambition to become the vice president of the country and if the time is now she is ready to do the job. She believes that APC should give the ticket to a woman and she is well ready to be the woman.
If she get the slot to run with Tinubu in the general election and APC go ahead to win the election, Binta will become the very first woman in Nigeria to reach that height.
Both APC and Peoples Democratic Party are in the business to pick their running mate which must be completed on or before Friday.
Political analysts are waiting and watching what the two leading parties will come out with.
