“The Cabal mainly the Northern Oligarchs are pushing for the nomination of Bukola Saraki, the current Senate President, as Vice President.

“Same thing they did with Sambo and Jonathan after a similar scenario happened to late President Yar Adua.

“The problem here is: according to sources, VP Osinbajo is very reluctant to working with Saraki.

“The reason is because Saraki is a man he considers to be very corrupt, but unqualified, to be Vice President.

“According to one reliable source, Mr. Osinbajo does not want someone with a case at the EFCC.

“And if he insists on this, the Cabal, may find an alternative in Malam El Rufai, the current governor of Kaduna State.

“An advice that may not go down well with the Cabal inside the APC. Events are moving fast inside Aso Rock.
