The comment of former President Olusegun Obasanjo that the choice of Atiku Abubakar as his vice-president in 1999 was a mistake dominated the cover pages of Nigerian newspapers.

Sunday Punch says the “confusion” in the All Progressives Congress (APC) has deepened over the search for a running mate for Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the party. The newspaper reports that Nigeria Immigration Service is investigating the authenticity of the passport obtained by Nwamini David, who was alleged to have been trafficked to the United Kingdom for organ harvest by Ike Ekweremadu, former deputy senate president, and Beatrice, his wife.

The Nation says Obasanjo said he made a mistake picking Atiku as vice-president in 1999. Charles Soludo, governor of Anambra, said those killing people in the state are only doing business and not agitating for a separate country, the newspaper reports.


Sunday Independent reports that analysts have predicted that vote buying and other issues may mar the conduct of the 2023 elections. Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) said the adoption of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) is critical to resolve the ongoing strike, the newspaper says.

Sunday Sun reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended the ongoing continuous voter registration. The newspaper says the Coalition of South-East Youth Leaders (COSEYL) has alleged plot to assassinate Peter Obi, presidential candidate of Labour Party.


The Guardian reports that economists have insisted that the payment of petrol subsidy by the federal government is fraudulent. The newspaper says Kebbi state customs area command has handed over 2,820 donkey skins it seized from smugglers to the Nigeria Agricultural Quarantine Service in the state.
