According to This Day, the politician told Arise TV that the party decided on the 2023 presidential ticket during the merger of the APC.

Osoba reportedly pointed out that the deal reached during the merger was for the north to produce the president in 2015.

He said:

“We had a clear gentlemanly understanding that the Northern part of the country will produce the president when we did the merger in 2013. And the chairman of the party will then come from the South.”

The former governor stated that the understanding at the time was for the APC presidential ticket to revert to the southern part of the country after the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari.
