Buhari's Running Mate: APC Leaders Fail to Agree

The series of meetings by the APC leaders ended early this morning, with no concrete agreement on a running mate for their presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari. 

The PUNCH says the meeting began at about 10:30am on Monday and ended at about 1:58am on Tuesday, with no agreement arrived at. The meeting, we read, was characterized by 'intense horse-trading.' 

The PUNCH has however stated that though it is not understood why the party couldn't reach an agreement, the National Working Committee of the APC would ratify one of their shortlisted candidates today. 

The aspirants under consideration are: Governors Rotimi Amaechi(Rivers), Babatunde Fashola(Lagos), Adams Oshiomhole(Edo) and a former Lagos State Commissioner for Justice, Prof. Yemi Osibajo.
