Aisha Buhari, the wife of the President, on Wednesday, June 8, 2022, made obvious her displeasure over the emergence of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The First Lady refused to join her husband at the podium for the handing of the party’s flag to Tinubu despite several pleas.

Aisha rejected every effort to make her move from her seat in the VIP section of the Eagles Square even when officials of the Presidency came to inform her she was called to the podium.

Tinubu was, however, handed the flag by President Muhammadu Buhari as Aisha’s space on the podium was left vacant.

The former Lagos State Governor scored 1,271 to defeat his closest challenger, Rotimi Amaechi, who polled 316.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, scored 235 to come third.

Others trailing behind are:

Ahmed Lawan – 152

Yahaya Bello – 47

Dave Umahi – 28

Prof Ben Ayade – 37
