NewsReport gathered that the Kano senator claimed that Tinubu visited Osinbajo at his home and solicited his support after declaring himself the candidate of the ruling party, according to Daily Trust.

Senator Gaya added that contrary to reports making the rounds, the vice president was not sidelined in the formation of the APC presidential campaign team.

“I am a member of Tinubu campaign team, so the issue of sidelining anyone does not arise. Even the president has said he wants Osinbajo to be with him in running the affairs of the country to ensure seamless handover.

“There is nothing like Osinbajo is sidelined because after the primaries, we were in Osinbajo’s house when Tinubu came and said he needed our support. We had over two hours’ discussion.

They are working together. Politics should not divide us,” Gaya, who served as the Director-General of the support groups of Osinbajo during the primaries, said

Gaya who spoke to newsmen in Kano reiterated that Osinbajo remained committed to the presidential ambition of the APC candidate, Tinubu. He expressed optimism the APC would sweep the votes in all the electoral positions in Kano state, predicting that the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) would come second while the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would come third.

According to the senator, APC is not worried by the growing strength of the NNPP.
