The source said, “During Thursday meeting, some APC governors told Tinubu not to dabble into affairs of Senate. That was the advise they gave him and they stood their ground that, zoning of the preferred candidacy is out of place, so they advised Bola Tinubu to let the National Assembly members, and particularly, the senators to sort themselves out.”
Further talking, he said Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, also agreed that he would not dabble into the politics of the National Assembly beyond reasonable limit, but, he appealed to the governors to work in synergy with the National leadership of the All Progressives Congress, inorder to put things in proper shape, regarding the choice of principal officers of the National Assembly.
