Tambuwal revealed his decision at the ongoing National Convention at MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja.
He urged all his supporters and delegates to vote for Atiku.
As he walked to his seat, an excited Melaye ran to him and lifted him off the ground in joy.
Melaye also saluted Tambuwal as both men exchanged handshakes.
