He said, despite the “antics of Lawan and his co-travelers, I remain the main person to beat, and I am in the race to win.


“No one can discredit me before the president-elect, who knows me very well and can vouch for my integrity. Senator Lawan and his cohorts are merely wasting their time.

He revealed that he visited Lawan in his residence shortly after the Senate president met with Tinubu for a possible truce.


The former Akwa Ibom State Governor said he was accompanied to the parley by Senators Opeyemi Bamidele, Solomon Olamilekan, Jibrin Barau, and Tokunbo Abiru but that Lawan rebuffed all pleas for peace.


He said: “SP is reacting over the outcome of the APC presidential convention where I publicly withdrew and declared for the president-elect, Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu. I am proud to belong to the most prestigious club in the world – the Senate.”
