Bola Tinubu, the Presidential candidate of The All Progressives Congress (APC) has responded to rumours of picking a Muslim as his running mate.
Tinubu, a Muslim himself, said that he intends to pick a Northern Christian as his running mate.
Tinubu made this explanation while addressing journalists at the APC governorship rally in Ekiti State on Tuesday.
The politician distanced himself from the rumours, saying that the carriers were undemocratic elements that are already threatened at his imminent victory in the coming presidential election.
“The VP slot belongs to the Northeastern region and particularly the Christians, but consultations are yet ongoing as to who will be decided,” he said.
He assured Nigerians that no group, institution or person can impose a running mate on him.
