Tinubu said this in Abuja on Thursday after holding a closed-door meeting with the President-elect, retired Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.
He said he would not go against anything the party decided but assured that merit would not be compromised while making the decision.
“However, the nation is expecting us to take a decisive leadership decision. Merit would not be compromised. You have to be competent; you have to possess the character for the leadership.
“You have to be PAN Nigerian and be a very solid character to lead the National Assembly and that is what we are talking about,’’ he said.
“Let everybody aspire just like we aspired’’.
He said predictions were rife during the APC presidential primaries that the party would run into “chaotic storm.
“We put those people to shame and came up with the best. Expect the best from us always,” he said. (NAN)
