Mohammed, who spoke to journalists at the PDP special national convention currently holding at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja, said he was approached and asked to step down, but he refused because it was “too late”.

“Yes, I have been. It came very late and it was not feasible for me to abandon my supporters,” he said.

“I am not stepping down for anybody. Nobody has my pedigree among the contenders from the north-east. Even from the south, they trust me,” he argued.
