The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, said on Sunday he was still looking for his running mate ahead of the 2023 general elections.

He stated this during his keynote speech at the Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of Representatives, 60th birthday celebration.

Tinubu had on June 17 named Kabiru Masari as his running mate for the 2023 elections in order to beat the deadline stipulated by the Independent National Electoral Commission for submission of running mates by the 18 political parties in the country.

“I could see a Deputy (Wase) sitting down there too, you are very good symbols of unity, dependability, and honesty, thank you. Thank you for both of you, you have not rocked the boat.

“I will need to learn from both of you, how you made the pair work because I’m still searching for my running mate.”

“What you did during my primary (APC presidential election) is a story for another day. I have spent more time, too many times and people might be bored. They might be envious too, they might be jealous. I won a landslide, I thank you.

“Femi, with your determination, and reach, you are a contributor to our democratic growth, thank you. It is about charting a path to success, you’ve done a good job and I say thank you, thank you.”
