Masari withdraws as Tinubu’s running mate

Ibrahim Masari has tendered his resignation as the running mate of the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the 2023 election.

The Informant247 observes that Masari was earlier chosen and his name forwarded to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC as placeholder.

Masari has via a letter directed at members of his party on Sunday, tendered his resignation.

The letter partly reads, “I had the singular honour and privilege of being nominated as the running mate to Asiwaju Tinubu last month after a keenly contested presidential primary ahead of the 2023 general election.

“After much reflection and wider consultations, I now wish to step down. I realised that my decision will enable Asiwaju to have more latitude to give more accommodation and inclusion that will position our party to win the coming elections, with the support of the people of Nigeria.”

The Informant247 had reported that Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu has chosen Senator Kashim Shettima as his vice presidential candidate.
