He has refused to grant audience to any of the aspirants despite pressures from them and several visits to Abuja for the President’s endorsement.

Aides to the President said he is looking for a candidate who will be loyal to the party and prepared to deliver the state to the APC in the 2027 general elections.

Credible source said that the silence of Tinubu till early hours of Saturday shows that he has tactically succumbed to pressure and thrown his weight behind Lucky Aiyedatiwa, supported by the Nigerian Governors Forum, to allow him continue for another four years.

This development has knocked off the 21 years governorship aspiration of Jimoh Ibrahim.

The businessman , now Senator representing Ondo South in the Senate, began the realization of his governorship ambition in 2003 under the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP.

So determined to get presidential endorsement was Jimoh of recent that he started adorning the cape with Tinubu’s political logo in all his public outings including overseas trips.
