Both men are the leading Northern presidential contenders in the race for the party’s sole ticket.

Jigawa State governor,  Mohammad Badaru completes the the list of Northern APC aspirants.

The governors after a meeting on Saturday released a statement asking all northern presidential hopefuls to withdraw from the race in national interest.
