"Let me also commend my fellow competitors for displaying a sense of unity, a sense of objective and a sense of commitment". Under President Olusegun Obasanjo, I learnt a lot as Vice President. "It's a victory for all of us". We always knew from day one that only one person will emerge, so today's event is not surprising.

PoliticsNGR earlier reported that the Governors under the party had earlier met with President Muhammadu Buhari.
