Speaking in an interview with the newspaper, Jor stated that he was not moved by the fact that he did not formally meet the APC stalwart to formally register his support for his presidential bid.

He said his support for Tinubu is spurred by the fact that the APC stalwart has always been a statesman and he has always shown support to the north over time.

Jor stated that Tinubu was highly instrumental to the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari as president in the 2015 presidential polls.

He said:

“His 2015 support for Buhari alone is enough for every northerner to support and celebrate the Man (Tinubu) so, that was why I trekked from Gombe to Lagos to show and register my support for him."

Jor however described Tinubu as a transformer, making reference to his accomplishment in Lagos State where he served as governor for two tenures and also as a mentor to his successors.
