Professor Yemi Osinbajo Is Buhari’s Running Mate

General Muhammadu Buhari, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), today selected law professor Yemi Osinbajo as his running mate for vice president.

The APC will make the final announcement in a short while.


Osinbajo’s nomination was concluded last night after APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, was asked to shelf his ambition that nearly tore the party apart.

An early morning meeting between Ogun State governor, Ibikunle Amosun, and Buhari finally resolved the acrimonious logjam in the party.

Osinbajo beat other potential candidates that reportedly included Governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, Governor Adams Oshiuomhole of Edo State, and former Lagos Senator Olorunnimbe Mamora.
