LP, APC, name Okupe, Masari as running mate in “placeholders” capacity

In a bid to beat INEC deadline of listing a running mate, both Labour Party and the All Progressive Congress have submitted names in "placeholders" capacity. While Obi's Labour Party listed its campaign DG, Doyin Okupe as its running mate, APC submitted Ibrahim Masari, Katsina state Governor.

But the reasons for these parties to submit names in holders capacity may differ: while sources say there is in house fighting in APC, LP seem not to have "found" a suitable running mate for Obi.

Doyin Okupe will stay in place of a VP to beat INEC deadline until a replacement is found.
