el-Rufai himself is said to eye the same coveted position and he is believed to oppose the former Lagos governor.

In an interview with The Sun when asked if the crisis that rocked the party stemmed from the rumoured Tinubu’s ambition, the governor said: “I don’t know and frankly I don’t care. Those reading everything through the lens of ambitions or 2023 are missing the point. As I have said, we built this party, we created it through a merger process that was painstaking and took a long time. I was deeply involved in it from day one and for me whatever crisis emerges between members of the party, we have a duty now as governors and leaders of the party to resolve it and we are going to resolve it. Whoever thinks it is targeted or is targeting anyone is irrelevant.”
