Emerging report reveals that the Aso Rock Cabals are allegedly considering a former Governor of Ogun State and serving Senator, Ibikunle Amosun, to run as Vice Presidential Candidate with the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, as the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, in the 2023 general elections.
It was learnt that apart from both Senator Amosun and AGF Malami being strong Allies of President Buhari, the party hopes to play the card of their being relatively young, before Nigerians.
Top sources in the All Progressives Congress, stated that by the party’s membership revalidation exercise which will end on March 31, and the ongoing probe on the National Leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, the Cabals believe that it has weakened the influence of the former Lagos State Governor (Tinubu), in becoming the next President of Nigeria, as has been widely speculated and projected.
“Ibikunle Amosun has been penciled down as Malami’s running-mate under our party. APC validation exercise is near completion, and it effectively takes away the party finally from Tinubu. His game in the APC is undone, as the EFCC is set to hunt him down.
“Talks about zoning to the South, are presently being reconsidered among the Governors. You recall Kogi State Governor Bello saying over the weekend, that there was nothing like zoning in the APC constitution. Gradually, they (the Governors) will make the zoning talk unpopular”, an APC source revealed.
It was further gathered that AGF Malami plans to heavily fund his 2023 Presidential campaign through the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, under the New Chairmanship, which he allegedly had a hand in installing.
