Meanwhile, supporters of Tinubu have been calling on the APC to hand him the presidential ticket because he 'worked hard' in getting Buhari into office.

According to the governor, he attended the iftar to prove that he is a product of consensus.

He said:

“I knew it was an opportunity to meet other eminent Nigerians who are stepping out to present themselves.
“And I was lucky I met Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, we discussed, he was calling me consensus and I told him that: ‘if you were in PDP we would have just given you the ticket because we knew that without you Buhari wouldn’t have been a president’ and so in PDP we recognise contributions."
