Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) presidential candidate, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has shortlisted four individuals to pick a running mate from.

Naija News gathered that those considered for running mate, including a serving governor, were screened on Wednesday.

A source close to Kwankwaso told The PUNCH that apart from the governor those screened are Kingsley Moghalu, Madam Charity from Bayelsa State, and Bishop Isaac Idahosa from Edo State.

Asked if Idahosa had been picked as Kwankwaso’s running mate, the source said, “He is part of those considered. He went through screening alongside three others yesterday (Wednesday).

“The Twitter handle being quoted is not that of the party, we couldn’t have announced it like that. We will announce our running mate before tomorrow.”

Recall that reports had emerged on Thursday claiming Kwankwaso had picked a popular pastor in Lagos State, Idahosa, as his running mate.

Idahosa is the Senior Pastor of God First Ministry, also known as Illumination Assembly, with its headquarters at Lekki Light Centre, Ajah, Lagos State.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had in a statement on Wednesday said the NNPP and the AAC are yet to upload candidates for various political positions in the country on its server.
