    The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, was absent on Thursday as the presidential candidates of other political parties were physically present for the signing of the now-customary peace pact.

    His absence caused some discomfort to APC members and supporters who felt aggrieved by his rumoured failing health

    However, Tinubu’s running mate, Kashim Shettima, was present at the signing alongside, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi of the Labour Party, Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party among others.

    DailyNewscraft.ng.ng reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission on September 21, 2022, released the final list of candidates for national elections, namely presidential, senatorial and federal constituencies, in line with the 2023 elections timetable earlier released in the year.

    INEC, which confirmed this in a statement by the National Commissioner in Charge of Voters’ Education, Festus Okoye, also posted the list on its website.

    The list contained 36 presidential candidates and the running mates of 18 political parties. Also, a total of 4,223 candidates will battle for 469 legislative positions (senatorial and federal constituencies) at the federal level.

    Earlier on Thursday, DailyNewscraft.ng reports that barely one week after releasing his presidential campaign council list, Tinubu come under heavy fire from the leadership and national working committee of the party.

    In a strongly worded letter written and signed by Adamu to Tinubu who is still having a vacation in London, the party accused him of arrogantly ignoring their contribution to the composition of his campaign council
