Following the emergence of General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) as presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and speculations that Rivers State Governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi has been selected as his running mate, the Presidency has described their rumored joint presidential ticket as a ‘fatal error’.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, who reacted to the rumor in a tweet on Friday, said “GMB/Amechi ticket na fatal error”.
Gen. Buhari (retd) will contest the 2015 presidential election against incumbent, President Goodluck Jonathan, whose adoption as the sole candidate of PDP was ratified at the party’s national convention on Thursday.
However, the APC has until December 18th to submit the names of its presidential and vice presidential candidate to INEC. President Jonathan has already named Vice President Namadi Sambo as his running mate for the poll.
