The Deputy Majority Leader, Prof. Ajayi Borroffice, also withdrew for Tinubu.

Fayemi, Akpabio, Amosun and Bankole announced their withdrawal at the APC presidential primaries held at Eagle Square in Abuja, directing their supporters to vote for the party’s National Leader, Bola Tinubu.

According to them, they took the decision not because they are weak but to promote the sportsmanship spirit of the Northern governors, who had agreed that the next President of the nation should come from the Southern part of the nation.
