APC chieftains request Masari retention

A Federal High Court in Abuja has been asked to stop the All Progressives Congress from replacing Alhaji Kabiru Masari as the running mate to its presidential candidate in the 2023 presidential election, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

 

Newsmen reported that shortly after Tinubu emerged as the presidential candidate of the APC, Masari’s name was submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission as an interim vice presidential candidate popularly called Placeholder.

 

However, two chieftains of the APC, who were delegates at the party’s primary and convention, Zakari Maigari and Zubainatu Mohammed, approached the court to stop INEC from accepting a change of the vice-presidential candidate from the APC.

 

The APC, INEC, Tinubu, and Kabiru Masari were joined as defendants in the suit marked FHC/ABJ CS/1059/2022 and dated July 4, 2022.
