Buhari who had challenged the administration multiple times before 2015 and lost, However, won the official pass to challenge on the foundation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015.
Sources accepted that the possibility of a Muslim-Muslim ticket may have been Obasanjo’s concern. Review that Buhari has a head of state, had managed with a Muslim bad habit in 1984.

To additional add to our feelings of dread, General Buhari on one event said there was nothing incorrectly in the Muslim-Muslim official course of action, saying after all he represented with Tunde Idiagbon.
That assertion made us know it (the Muslim-Muslim thought) was a reality. On two events, Bola Tinubu referenced in my quality that they concurred.
In the event that you review one moving video back, at that point, where it was said that Buhari had discarded what they conceded to, that is the room he was dozing in when Buhari was searching for the post.
We at that point told Baba (Obasanjo). We revealed to him that taking force from an officeholder government was an extreme assignment and we should not give space for reasons and miss the objective. We disclosed to him they (Buhari and Tinubu) were thinking about a Muslim-Muslim ticket.
That was when Baba (Obasanjo) said individuals ought not to underestimate the sensibilities of Nigerians. Oyinlola expressed that after Obasanjo got wind of the “understanding” he forewarned that the sensibilities of Nigerians ought not to be underestimated, which prompted the development of a Christian bad habit official applicant.
After that (Obasanjo’s intercession), they began saying in my quality that Obasanjo baffled the arrangement to get Tinubu on the ticket for 2015 yet I generally went about as though I didn’t hear them.
We at that point had a partners meeting where the issue of the running mate was talked about once more.” Obasanjo embraced Buhari’s candidature in February 2015 after he surrendered his enrollment from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and had a spat with previous President Goodluck Jonathan.
