Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo on Monday met behind closed-doors with the former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume.
Ndume, who is aspiring to be Senate President of the 9th Senate indicated that he was not ready to step down from the race, The Nation reports.
He had declared his intention to run for Senate president office, despite endorsement of the current Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan for the position by the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC).
When asked by state house correspondents whether he would step down for Lawan, he asked rhetorically: “Me?”
“This is not the time to talk now because I am still holding consultation,” he stated.
He further declined to speak further on the Senate Presidency race.
