It was gathered that Governors Ibikunle Amosun and Rochas Okorocha are behind his ordeal with the DSS.

Various party chieftains across the country have constantly called for the resignation of the former Edo State governor over the conduct of the primaries.

When asked by reporters if he supports the call for the removal of the embattled chairman, Tinubu said, “No.”

Speaking further, he said: “We all have to respect the party supremacy. When we had the congress we elected a new executive.

“And we surrendered our rights to the committee, that the national working committee would set up electoral bodies to supervise state congresses and elections.

“So, if it is not in an individual favour, so be it.”
