All Nigeria Latest News reports that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has reportedly urged his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, to consider stepping down and endorsing him for the upcoming February 2023 presidential election.

Tinubu has requested that Atiku reciprocate the “gesture” he received in 2007 when he contested for the presidency under the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) by withdrawing his current ambition and endorsing Tinubu.

The presidential candidate of the APC spoke on Monday when he met with leaders from the northern part of the country under the umbrella of the Arewa Joint Committee for an interactive session.

The meeting was part of a wider interaction with selected presidential candidates to discuss their plans for the region ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Tinubu’s appearance came two days after his rival in the PDP engaged in a similar interaction with the northern leaders. The interactive session held at the Arewa House in Kaduna was organised by a coalition of six groups from the North including the Arewa Consultative Forum, Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation, Northern Elders Forum, and Jamar Matan Arewa among others.
