2023 Campaign: Tinubu Rejects Buhari's Nomination, Okadigbo

APC Presidential Candidate, Tinubu Rejects Buhari’s Nominee, Okadigbo's Widow, As South-East Coordinator, Appoints Campaign Secretary Against Party’s Advice.A fresh crisis is currently brewing in the All Progressives Congress (APC) after its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu rejected President Muhammadu Buhari’s nomination of Margaret Chuba Okadigbo as the Zonal Coordinator of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council in the South-East.

Margaret is the widow of the late former Senate President, Dr Chuba Okadigbo.

Multiple sources in the presidency told SaharaReporters that Buhari asked Tinubu to pick Margaret to lead the ruling APC’s campaign in the region but he refused.

“His (Tinubu) South-East penetration is the lowest, he refused Buhari’s nomination of Okadigbo’s wife to handle his South-East campaign. He felt she’s not capable enough despite being told by the President to pick her,” one of the sources told SaharaReporters.

In January, Buhari appointed Margaret as chairman of the newly-incorporated Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited.

Okadigbo was a political ally of Buhari and a one-time running mate.
