‘Two days after had a discussion with JANDOR on the issue of working with the Labour Party, H. E. Atiku Abubakar, our presidential candidate invited JANDOR to his home on the same issue of working arrangements with the Labour Party.

“The meeting involved H. E. Atiku, a retired General and one other powerful Northern leader. The issue of collaboration was raised and JANDOR stated that he was not ready to step down for Labour Party Candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour, and the only condition is for Gbadebo to step down for him because he has his Awori people behind him,”
