Following yesterday's defection of the G-5 governors and the Abubakar
Kawu Baraje led nPDP to the All Progressive Congress, APC, Vanguard
learnt the APC is planning to present Governors Rabiu Kwankwaso of
Kano State and Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State as its candidates for
the 2015 Presidential election.
Vanguard gathered that the party wants to take advantage of Fashola's
performance in Lagos State and Kwankwaso's influence as a governor of
the northern state of Kano.
Not minding that they are both Muslims, the source said that it
happened in 1993 when it was Moshood Abiola and Babagana Kingibe who
are both Muslims and they ran for election and won, but was annulled.
It was also gathered that APC may also beg governor Adams Oshiomhole
because of his achievements in the state, his influence, popularity
and acceptability by Nigerians to run for the presidency in the 2015
