A national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Ahmed Tinubu , has said there is no truth in the speculation that he may emerge as President Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate for the 2019 presidential election .
Tinubu described as a “ classic case of utterly and irredeemably-fake news ,” the report in a national daily ( not The PUNCH) that he was being mooted as Buhari’ s running mate in 2019 to boost the APC ’ s chances in the South -West .
According to a statement by his Media Officer , Tunde Rahman , the APC chieftain said it was speculated in the said report that Vice -President Yemi Osinbajo , a pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God, might withdraw from politics in 2019 and return to full church work .
Tinubu , however , described the report as false, insisting that he and Nigerians “ have absolute confidence and are exceedingly proud of the excellent job that Professor Osinbajo is doing as the Vice - President of Nigeria .”
