Former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmad Tinubu, has been declared the winner of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential primary election.
APC held a special convention between 6 to 8 of June 2022 to elect the ruling party’s presidential candidate.
Tinubu emerged as the APC candidate at the end of the presidential primary after polling about 60% of the 2300 votes.
He defeated his closest rivals, Nigeria’s Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo and former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Chibueke Amaechi, to clinch the ruling party’s ticket.
Tinubu is expected to face the candidate of the country’s major opposition party, Atiku Abubakar, and others in the 2023 general election.
