Reactions continue to trail the emergence of Bola Tinubu as the 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress.
The recently concluded special convention of the APC saw Bola Tinubu securing 1271 votes to beat his closest rivals; former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who secured 316 votes and 235 votes respectively.
A number of callers on Nigeria Info's Hard Facts were of the opinion that the clamour for a South Eastern presidency will only come to fruition if South Easterners rally around a particular candidate.
