The President called me, had a meeting with me, and assured me that he will, as the leader of the party, improve on internal democracy within our party, and I will need to withdraw the case to enable him to chart a way forward.

In addition to that, Jimoh said the Governor of Ondo state, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, earlier visited his Asokoro residence for several hours after another unsuccessful visit to his hotel room in Akure.
