According to Senator Ibrahim, the decision to withdraw the suit came after a personal meeting with President Tinubu, during which the Head of State “assured [him] that he will, as President, improve internal democracy within our party.” The Governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, had also previously visited Senator Ibrahim’s residence in Asokoro for several hours.

In his statement, Senator Ibrahim expressed his profound respect for the President, stating, “I cannot disobey the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria because the issue I am fighting for is not personal. It is simply to improve internal democracy to which the President has promised improvement.”

The withdrawal of the lawsuit is seen as a significant gesture, coinciding with the first anniversary of President Tinubu’s administration. Senator Ibrahim hailed it as a “gift of the ‘cake’ of the first anniversary,” underscoring the President’s commitment to strengthening internal party processes.

This development underlines the President’s engagement with key stakeholders and his focus on addressing concerns related to internal democracy within the party. It is expected to pave the way for further dialogue and collaborative efforts to enhance the party’s democratic credentials and foster greater inclusivity.
