“Take Tinubu and what he has done in Lagos State and the country physically, politically, socially, culturally, and economically, I do not see any presidential candidate that can match his competence, achievements, and vision.”

According to the judgement by Justice Emeka Nwite Governor Mai Mala Buni who submitted their names to INEC violated the provisions of Section 183 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Section 82(3) of the Electoral Act 2022,
The court declared that Governor Mai Mala Buni acted in contravention of the provision of Section 183 of the Constitution when he held dual executive positions as the Governor of Yobe State and the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee of APC.
