TENSION IN TINUBU CAMP AS JOHN OYEGUN SAYS ONLY ‘YOUTHFUL ASPIRANTS’ CLEARED FOR APC CONVENTION

Tension on Friday enveloped the camp of Bola Tinubu after John Oyegun announced that his screening committee had screened out 10 aspirants for only those considered youthful.

Mr Oyegun said 13 out of 23 aspirants seeking the ruling party’s ticket for the 2023 presidential election were cleared to run at the convention on June 6.

Mr Oyegun made the announcement on Friday in Abuja, capping a long week of aspirants’ screening. The list of qualified aspirants has not yet been made public.

It would be recalled that on Monday Mr Oyegun might disqualify Mr Tinubu, 70, because of their bitter political fallout in 2018, which saw both politicians publicly disparage each other in vilest terms.

The development has sent Mr Tinubu’s camp into a state of anger.

It was gathered that some of its members threatened to abandon the ruling party.

The former Lagos governor had warned of harsh consequences if he doesn’t clinch the ticket.
