Only Osinbajo and Tinubu, according to him, are still in the race.

Gaya, on the other hand, made no indication of how or where the stakeholders came to their decision.

Yahaya Bello, a presidential candidate and the governor of Kogi state, was traveling from one pavilion to the next at the presidential convention’s Eagle Square location, exchanging pleasantries with delegates, as he was speaking.

“They (stakeholders) are still in the process of negotiating,” Gaya said of the ongoing talks. You know, during conventions or congresses like these, aspirants make decisions, and people still make decisions at the last minute. They’re attempting to slim down.

“All I know is that we feel the presidency should be given to a Southerner, and we have now agreed to that so that we may have a northern running mate and win the election.”

“We have Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the number of aspirants.” It all boils down to the Southwest in the end. The party would not announce outright that any candidate has been dismissed, but I am aware that three candidates, including Senator Ken Nnamani, have withdrawn from the race for vice president. I’m not sure who the other two are right now, but I believe they’ll be announced later,” he said.

Senator Gaya commented on Senate President Ahmad Lawan’s presidential ambitions, saying, “In principle, when we have President Muhammadu Buhari from Northern Nigeria serving for seven years and about to serve for eight years, I think naturally the power should shift to the South, and that is what we have been talking about for the past two years, and that is how to make Nigerians believe that APC is a party for all, not a regional or sectional party.”
