The Ogun State governor said the governors took the decision after their meeting with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Tuesday.
He spoke when he received a delegation of the Tajudeen Abbas/Benjamin Kalu Campaign Team under the Joint Task – 10th Assembly in Abuja on Thursday.
“We (governors) met with the president two days ago. During our meeting, he told us that campaigns are over. He said that he’d be president for all. So, he sought our understanding and collaboration. It is within the right of the president to seek those that will make his job easier. He has decided in collaboration with the party that these are the people that he wants to work with. All of us across party lines keyed into what the president told us. We had our meeting after meeting him and decided that we should support the president,” the governor said.
