In other news, the Arewa Mandate Initiative (AMI) has tipped Tinubu and a former governor of Rivers state and minister of transport, Rotimi Amaechi, as potential successors of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

The group said the endorsement was in line with the gentleman agreement reached by the leaders of the party at the formative stage in 2015.

AMI said it recognises the right of all Nigerians to seek any elective office of their choice because it is a constitutionally guaranteed right. It, however, urged northern politicians to let go of their presidential ambition as part of their own sacrifice for the unity and stability of Nigeria.
