Addressing reporters after yesterday’s meeting with APC governors, Tinubu said he was seeking the governors’ support for his ambition.

He added: “My mission here is to seek collaboration, support, and encouragement of my party, the APC, for my ambition to become the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.”
