No doubt that one of the politicians who will contest for the election is the two terms former governor of Lagos state and the current national leader of the ruling party, the All Progressive Congress (APC) Chief Ahmed Bola Tinubu. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

However, his success at the polls will depend on several factors and one of these factors is whom he will finally pick as his running mate.

Because he is from the southwest and as such would have to pick a running mate from the other region, however choosing a running mate from the southeast will be a plan against his own victory, therefore, he is left with just an option, which is to select his running mate from the Northern part of Nigeria.

However, Tinubu is also a Muslim and picking a running mate from among the northern Muslims may never augur with the Christians and as such, they will try to truncate his efforts. Therefore it will be binding on him to pick a northern Christian as his running mate.

However, the only person fit for this task is Simon Lalong, the incumbent governor of Plateau state, this is for two reasons, one he is a northern Christian and secondly he is an APC statesman and loyalist of the party leadership.

The peaceful coexistence of the diverse groups in Plateau state is a reason many have applauded Simon Lalong, as Plateau state is for long known for its ethnic and religious crisis.

Another reason why Simon Lalong would be a better running mate to Tinubu is the numerous legacy projects and rehabilitation of township roads, which he has inspected in Plateau state and still, there are a lot of ongoing projects in the state. Which has won him the love of many citizens of the nation?

Lalong has also moved towards rejuvenating the state schools for the poor and less privileged children in the state who ordinarily would not have been affording education, plus his incessant move towards adding meaning to the life of the physically challenged persons.

Also if Tinubu should pick Lalong as a running mate no doubt the Christians which change their thoughts about Tinubu and move to support him in the 2023 presidential election.

can the two of them defeat atiku/igbo combination? remember how incumbent buari struggled hard to defeat atiku in 2019 despite federal might. is that not an indirect way of giving power back to pdp?

Having contributed to the enthronement of this failed APC government of Buhari, Tinubu can never and will never be president of Nigeria take this to the bank.

I laugh because you're one of the people that want him to waste his money.
