APC, N/PDP Merger: Kwakwanso and Fashola Favours For President and Vice-President
The recently announced merger of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and the new faction of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), we gathered has led to series of meeting since the marriage was contracted as source revealed that the newly formed opposition party may have concluded plans over who will be flying the flag of the party against the ruling PDP.
It was gathered from close source that the leadership of the APC, may have concluded plans to use the current Governors of the country's two most populous States in the next elections. Unconfirmed source revealed that the party may have agreed that the Executive Governor of Kano State, Alhaji Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso may be contesting as the president come next general elections while his counterpart from Lagos, Barrister Babatunde Raji Fashola, will be running as the Vice-President.
Though information at our source is still sketchy it is the believe that the APC may be using the two as joker owning to the population of registered voters in the two States, hoping that the combination will give the party a chance to closely challenge the ruling party for a chance to occupy the country's Aso Villa seat of power come 2015.
The current information is coming on the heels of the earlier one that tipped the current Speaker of the Federal House of Representative, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal whose name has been moving round as the designated candidate for the 2015 presidential election.
