The group recently had its say via a press statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to TSO, even if the APC has many outstanding individuals among its leaders that could serve as Tinubu’s running mate, the North-West, as the single largest voting bloc in Nigeria, should be allowed to produce the next Vice President.
The group added that it arrived at the decision after its consultative meeting with critical stakeholders of the APC in the North-West geopolitical zone of the country.
It read, “After due consultation with critical stakeholders, especially in the North-West, it is of the fact that El-Rufai is Asiwaju’s best choice for Vice President.”
“We are glad that the APC has many outstanding individuals among its leaders. But, having assessed all the options, it is the view of the TSO that the APC’s candidate for the VP should be chosen from the North-West, the single largest voting bloc in Nigeria.”
“It is our view that the person that can best compliment Asiwaju as VP is Malam Nasir El-Rufai, the Executive Governor of Kaduna State, and we recommend that he should be chosen as the running mate.”
“El-Rufai is a very experienced person. He has held offices at the federal level and at the state level, and he has done well in every office. He has always stood for progressive policies. He is not afraid of difficult decisions. This is a man that is running a state government with appointees from all over Nigeria.”
“His capacity is not in doubt. His personal ability is outstanding. He is firm. He is courageous. He is principled. We know that he resisted every pressure to be dragged into the presidential race. We appreciate him and his colleagues, the APC governors from the north, for sticking to the view that gentlemen should respect agreements.”
“El-Rufai is a leader whose talents and energy should be brought back to the federal level. We appeal to all our leaders in the APC to support Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to choose El-Rufai as his running mate.”
