“Be that as it may, the gathering turned out again and stated, ‘You can connect with them now,’ so I contacted them.

“I host composed the gathering, showing my goal to challenge. Indeed, even my national administrator, Adams Oshiomhole, freely said they just suggested Lawan and not that they are ceasing anyone.
“As I talk with you, no one has counseled me to state ‘don’t keep running for Senate President.’ Everyone has the sacred appropriate.”
