When contacted, the President of the association, Alhaji Bello Bodejo, confirmed the development, adding that Tinubu will be formally endorsed by the Association at its coming meeting in Lafia on Friday, December 30.

It’s at that meeting that we will carry out the formal announcement of Tinubu as our choice of presidential candidate. If you could remember, we stated a few weeks ago that we would announce our choice of presidential candidate for the coming elections and that is what will be done on Friday.
“We have met with his representatives and had extensive discussions on the bases and conditions for our support, and both parties are satisfied with the working conditions. We have also signed the dotted lines, so we are good to go. We would release other necessary information as the need arises.”
