However, an authoritative source hinted Vanguard that the committee scored the candidates based on its own criteria and Yemi Osinbajo emerged top.

The committee’s report submitted to the National Chairman of the APC, Senator Adamu Abdulahi, was set to be discussed at the Saturday night’s meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari, members of the APC National Working Committee (NWC) and the 23 presidential aspirants at the presidential villa, Abuja.

Also at the meeting were the Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha and the National Security Adviser (NSA), Major General Babangida Monguno.
