On a speculation that some aspirants might have withdrawn from the race, Ikuforiji said that it would be a good development.

“If the APC ends up having one aspirant, it will be a good omen.”

“APC is a party with ideas and men of integrity; we are desirous of moving Nigeria forward.”

“If aspirants step down, it means they have seen something better in the other aspirant, and it is a show of patriotism,” the speaker said.
