The convention which commenced last night had seven aspirants who have stepped down from the presidential race to drum support for Bola Tinubu. One aspirant stepped down for Osinbajo.

Osinbajo, who was rated as one of the top contenders of the party ticket had earlier left the venue about an hour ago while counting of votes was going on.

Reports so far have it that Tinubu is leading, with Amaechi and Osinbajo following far behind, while counting of votes continue.

  1. APC motto says Justice, Peace and Unity. But the party has sacrificed the first one which is Justice. It is justice that the power should return to South. But it is injustice that it should return to South West instead of South East. While it is understandable to forgive APC, That of PDP is unforgiveable because the South East had stood with PDP through thick and thin for decades.
    Where do all these leave the ordinary Nigerian? It is obvious that the winners of the primaries are not the brightest minds and the most capable hands that can solve the nation’s problems but those that have brightest chance to win. It is up to Nigerians to vote only who can solve the problems whether he stands a chance or not. It is our votes that will make him win. If we chose to do the usual all of us will suffer it, which means we will wait until 2027.
