Let's See Who The Presidential Cap Fits Among These Three APC Leaders.
The First APC Leader that would be discussed is Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Tinubu happened to be the national Leader of All Progressives Congress APC and the former Governor of Lagos State.

Although, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is facing some challenges in the Party. The Economic and Financial Crime Commission are after Tinubu over the mismanagement of Public funds. Some are of the Opinions that some Party Leaders that do not want Tinubu to contest the Presidential Polls under the Platform of the Party are behind this action. But the fact is Tinubu is contesting for the Post of President under the Platform of All Progressives Congress APC.
The second Leader is the Governor of Ekiti State, Governor Kayode Fayemi. Kayode Fayemi is second Candidate from the southwest contesting Presidential Polls. Though, Governor Fayemi may not bee too much Popular in the Southwest but the northern elders are interested in Fayemi's candidature. Therefore, Governor Fayemi may be the ordained Presidential candidate as majority of the Northerners may support him when it is time.
Kayode Fayemi may not be as Popular as Tinubu in the Southwest, but Fayemi will get the full support from the Northerners. Tinubu may not be given the kind of support that will be given to Fayemi by the nothern Elders. Therefore, Governor Fayemi may have huge edge over other Presidential candidates in the north.
