Shinkafi also said, he has taken the decision purely to show a mark of respect for the president and called on all stakeholders to also align themselves with the decision of the party.
“I, personally, align myself with the decision of the Chairman of the caretaker committee for all the decision he takes. I am with him and I have accorded him all the support”.

He thanked his coordinators across all the (36) states for their tireless effort to supporting his candidature, noting that he has sacrifice his destiny of intending to become a National chairman to God almighty because he decided what happened and at the time he wishes.
