National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC,  Bola Tinubu, today explained how Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was picked as Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate.

Speaking during the presentation/launch of a book, “Muhammadu Buhari: The Challenges of Leadership in Nigeria”, authored by a professor of International Studies, John Paden, Tinubu said, “There was the issue of selecting Buhari’s running mate. After a careful study and discussion, it was agreed that we should field a religiously balanced ticket given the sensitivity of the moment.

Based upon this conclusion, the name of a renowned professor, Yemi Osinbajo, a professor of law and former Lagos State Attorney-General during my tenure as governor was proposed and accepted as the running mate.

“Osinbajo was also a pastor in the largest church in the entire country and this would answer those who had wrongfully tried to paint and present Muhammadu Buhari as intolerant religiously. From this event, you can see a portrait of a president as a democrat more adept than many would think.”
