When asked if the governors are aggrieved over the composition of the campaign list, he said, “We are very proud of our party and we are proud of our party leader, Mr President Muhammadu Buhari and the convention we had that gave us our presidential candidate in person of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and our vice presidential candidate, Senator Kashim Shettima and we are very proud of the actions of our national chairman and members of the NWC.
“We are very proud of the actions of the presidential campaign council. Though there were lists that were unfortunate not to make the list and the campaign council with the party have anounced that would be harmonized but we happy to say that the party is solidly behind the candidate and I believe whatsoever list has come out erroneously are mistakes and were not authorized.”
