Buhari Picks Tinubu As Running Mate, Amaechi VP Ticket A Rumour

Dec 13, 2014 – Buhari Picks Tinubu As Running Mate, Amaechi VP Ticket A Rumour

Update: Please note, APC says Buhari has not made up his mind on who he plan to pick as running mate.

Previous report…

Ex-Military President General Buhari, the newly selected presidential candidate of the APC party has handed former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu a slot as his running mate.

According to the Cable, Buhari’s decision to give Tinubu the slot is apparently based on the voting population of the south-west which he is banking on to upstage the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2015 presidential election. An aide to Buhari says.

“Politics is not winner-takes-all. Tinubu worked round the clock to deliver a huge chunk of votes to Buhari in the primary, and it is only fair that he is honoured in return.”

The APC party met today in Lagos to pick a running mate for Buhari and some earlier rumors had it that River’s State governor Rotimi Amaechi had been picked. Buhari and Amaechi were spotted leaving together after breakfast this morning at Intercontinental hotel Lagos.

Do you think Tinubu & Buhari ticket is a winning one???



  1. APC will lose

    Sorry to say APC has set themselves up for failure, intra faith ticket is never a winner, they just handed over to Jonathan
    Muslim muslim ticket will intimidate most Christians in the country

    I just commenced immense online campaign for General Bahari on face book with intent to post it’s beginning on Nija gist, online news papers, twitter etc. I was thinking that Buhari will pick Amechi or Fasola. If he confirms Tinubu as his running mate, i will be very sad and remove my message from face book. I will wish them doom with a sad mind. There are many better ways to compensate Tinubu’s efforts but nut to be picked as a running mate for the like of Buhari. Even right now, i am saddened at the rumor.

    Of what use is a Christian president when Christians are been persecuted daily, We are not moved by the faith of the president, We are moved by someone that will pilot the affairs of the country in a good direction and for all citizens to be at peace. Nigerians wake up with this religious madness. China, USA, and other grew because they put aside sentiment and choose a good leader, What we need is a good leader regardless of where he comes from. Period

    Fashola would’ve made a good running mate with his leadership qualities, I’m not bothered abt muslim muslim but I can’t find any quality in tinubu to justify him as a good match,he remains a failure as far as I’m concerned.APC has just disappointed us

    When i said pdp is too strong to be defeated some were calling me names as if i,m a politician, see i hate both pdp and apc but if u compare the duo u will see that pdp is far more better than apc, apc lack wisdom,they behave like touts, they want to islamize this country with this dia muslem/muslem agenda no nothing will give them victory.

    APC are getting into doom and total failure,if they succeeded in handpicking Tinubu as Buhari running mate,let’s forget about Christian and Muslim ticket, Tinubu personalty would definitely give APC a total set back and failure in next presidential election.
    Tinubu is a dictator,Buhari would be in Aso-rock as decorative president,just the way he was during him and Tunde Idiagbon regime.

    Debunk the rumour and news, it is not true. The party has never decided on anybody to choose as Buhari that I know will make no such mistake.

    Buhari only asked Tinubu to help him choose a runnung mate for him, Tinubu can not be his running mate, neither fashola, fashola also is a muslim, the best person he should choose is Ameachi, If he does, APC will win come 2015.

    Yoooo! If we do not de-trend hellishly annoying religious bigotry, we are not going to achieve much. We yelled for Christian, southerner, and a graduate, what have we attained? Nigerians must not hesitate to vote out this PDP nightmare out. If JOE doesn’t get it, then every voter must overthrow his aimless govt. come February. I cannot stand people who are clinging intimately to their adolescent mediocrity, Nigeria must not go aground.

    Even if Buhari picks a pastor, reveren or Evangelist as his running mate he can never win. Period!

      Hello Mr. Professor, If I may ask, are you a professor of foolishness or stupidity? I’m not surprise because you sounds dumb and brainless like dumb Dr. of zoology who suddenly became Nigerian president because of stupidity and political manipulations of criminal Olusegun Obasanjo. You sounds like president Jonathan who cannot even express himself correctly and clearly in English language. Please can you list if there is any, those achievements of this do-nothing president in the past five years of his failed presidency? We have the most unpopular, unpatriotic, most corrupt and most imcompentent president Nigeria ever had; and you think suffering Nigerian masses who vote a moron like Jonathan for another four years of setbacks, kidnapping, gross murder of innocent Nigerians, mismanagement, money laundering operations, corruption, leadership failure, abuse of power and economic disaster? I believe that you guys campaigning for a failure doesn’t live in reality but dilution. Mark my word, General Mohammad Buari election victory will be so overwhelming that it will be impossible for your criminal president to rig. And if Jona try any election fraud next year, he will be overthrow by a bloody military coup like that of Gadaff of Libya that died a shameful death on the street of Tripoli. One thing that peace loving Nigerian people are requesting from this failed president is a free and fair election next year February. Jonathan’s failures know no boundaries, he has failed suffering Nigerian people miserably regardless of their tribes, language, culture and religious. Please tell him to stay clear of election fraud so that he can live to enjoy his looted money like the rest of the past criminals like him. Professor, kindly list the achievements of Jonathan that qualify him so the 3rd term in his father’s house? That is a debate Nigerian people want to have with dumb people like you.Thank you.

    Even me Asiwaju I am bitter now with this Buhari’s running mate if it is true. Is going to be a big failure. Why these people even Nigeria has prominent good young intellectual overseas and back home why cannt they not rule instead of all these people with old mentality.

    I thought he has already picked Fashola? So what has gone wrong? Instead for him and those 2 to come let Jonathan remain in power. I am sorry.
