According to Mr Bagudu, the governors will support Mr Buhari’s preferred aspirant. He also disclosed that the governors agreed to support any process that would lead to a consensus.

Last month, Mr Buhari said he was in favour of the consensus mode for selecting candidates for the party’s national positions. He had urged the governors to explore the option of consensus.
