Tinubu, Others Submit Normination Forms At APC Secretariat

Former Governor of Lagos State and presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has submitted his expression of interest and nomination forms for president.

The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-olu and his counterpart from Osun, Gboyega Oyetola submitted the forms on behalf of Mr Tinubu.

Last month, a group procured the N100 million forms for the former governor, who was then performing the lesser Hajj in Mecca.

The 70-year-old Mr Tinubu, who is allegedly facing a health challenge, will also battle some close allies for the APC ticket at the party’s primary election scheduled for later in the month.

Meanwhile, three other presidential aspirants and three governorship aspirants have also submitted their forms at the party’s national office in the nation’s capital.

They are former Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun; former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole; and former vice-presidential candidate and popular pastor, Tunde Bakare.

While Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State is seeking re-election for a second term in office, the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and the Minister of State for Mines and Steel, Uche Ogar, are joining the race to be governors of Kebbi and Abia States respectively.
