Speaking today, on Channels Television’s Politics Today, a chieftain of the APC, Kabiru Faskari said: “Ibrahim Kabiru Masari is our vice presidential nominee. He was the Welfare Secretary of the APC under Oshiomhole (former national chairman of the party).”

According to him, Kabiru Masari is a well-known politician in Kaduna State, saying that Kabiru hails from Katsina State.

He said that Kabiru is experienced and has been close to Tinubu, adding that he will not have problem working with the former Lagos State governor.

“He is young; he represents the youths and is grounded in politics and was even a national official of the APC. He is quite close to the presidential candidate and has been with him for a very long time,” he explained. “It is a very informed decision to put out his name.”

He said that the decision was taken to forward the name of Kabiru to INEC after wide consultations.

“I think what it is, is that it was the decision of the presidential candidate after due diligence.”
