APC ticket meant for Osinbajo, not you, Babangida tells Tinubu
Former Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, said the All Progressives Congress presidential ticket was not meant for the National Leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, but Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.
Aliyu added that the party will only collect money from Tinubu and give the ticket to Osinbajo, adding that the Vice-President is the preferred candidate of Nigerians.
He spoke at the 2022 annual lecture of the Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation in Kano State.
According to Aliyu, any “riff-raff or moneybags” will not get to the highest office in the country, even if they bring out the money.

“No matter how much money he has, let him bring the money and we will collect it, Mr. Vice President, wherever you go, we will follow,”
He, however described Osinbajo, who is yet to declare interest in the presidential race as the best candidate for the ruling party saying, “Mr Vice President, do you know you are the best candidate in your party?”
