Nigerians React As Tinubu Gets Early Lead In APC Primaries

The APC presidential primaries has thrown up several surprises, with Tinubu in early lead. Several contestants, including Ibikunle Amosun, Godswill Akpabio and Kayode Fayemi, had stepped down for the former governor of Lagos state. 

With the early lead in the primaries, many political pundits are saying that Tinubu might clinch the APC ticket after all and be in the running to become Nigeria’s next president. 

The prospect of Tinubu winning the primaries and eventually becoming the president of Nigeria has filled many with fear and alarm and others with admiration for being a political tactician. 

One social media user, who was particularly impressed with how Tinubu had managed to pull off an early lead amid the obstacles in his path, noted that the former governor should open a school on political tactics sometime in the future. 

If Tinubu should eventually clinch the APC ticket, he would have two major opponents at the polls: Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party. 

But then winning the primaries is one thing, and winning the presidential election is a different ball game altogether. 

Well, if you’re keen on a better Nigeria, you should gear up to cast your votes.
