A report published in Vanguard earlier rated Osinbajo among the three presidential aspirants including former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and former Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi ahead of their counterparts in the last night’s Special Convention of the All Progressives Congress, APC, which held at the Eagle Square in Abuja.
While six aspirants stepped down for Tinubu, one stepped down for Osinbajo but Amaechi put up a strong defence of his aspiration.
