It appears the All Progressives Congress (APC) of Nigeria wants to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Fielding Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as Gen. Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate will signal the party’s end. It would be a Muslim-Muslim ticket in a country threatened with disintegration.
It would also mean excluding the south-east from Nigeria’s leadership. Would a Yoruba rule Nigeria again before an Igbo? Not after Obasanjo’s 12 years.
However, there are indications that GMB has not been fooled. He is said to have rejected Osibanjo, Tinubu’s candidate. The BIG announcement is expected on Buhari’s 72nd birthday — Wednesday, Dec. 17. It will make or mar the APC.
