Will Buhari drop Osinbajo in 2019?

The fate of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo come 2019 is uncertain, as the presidency recently issued a statement saying that President Buhari will name his running mate after he has won the APC nomination to fly the party's flag in 2019.

According to presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, Buhari is not yet a candidate of the APC, so he cannot pick a running mate.

Shehu said this while answering questions regarding why Buhari did not say anything about his running mate when he declared his intention to run for a second term.
