The National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, said the running mate for the party's presidential candidate for the 2015 general election may be announced on Wednesday.

Odigie-Oyegun, who disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday at the end of National Working Committee meeting of the party, said that the presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, would make the announcement in a news conference.

He said that the party had reached agreement on presidential running mate but insisted that it would be made public by Buhari.

'The choice is not delayed; the candidate will speak to you people. I have a feeling he will speak to you tomorrow.

'The party has consulted with the candidate ‎and we have reached some agreement and he will address you tomorrow,' he said.

NAN reports that the NWC members at the meeting included the Speaker of House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal and former Federal Capital Territory minister, Nasir El-Rufai.
