The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu, is leading other presidential aspirants of the party at the ongoing APC Convention in Abuja.
Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, is currently dominating in the vote counting.
Tinubu is ahead of favourites like Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Ahmad Lawan, former Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi; former Abia State governor, Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, and Kogi governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.
Former Senate President Ken Nnamani had earlier pulled out of the race over what he perceived as injustice being meted to the South-East region of the country. He said the slot ought to have been zoned to the region, considering that South-West and South-South regions had produced presidents of Nigeria in the current political dispensation.
The likes of Ekiti State governor, Kayode Fayemi; former Akwa Ibom governor, Godswill Akpabio; Dimeji Bankole, and Ajayi Boroface earlier stepped down for Tinubu.
