We’re not informed of any consensus candidate – Sen Musa

But when asked, Senator Musa said, “Why did the party sell forms to us? As far as I’m concerned, there has never been anybody that officially contacted me or any other aspirants.

“Nobody! And the spokesperson to Mr President, Femi Adesina, has said there is no endorsement.”
