He recently revealed that no one will force Fayemi to contest for the presidency as Tinubu is the better candidate for the job.
According to him, Tinubu’s antecedents speak for him and he is a good mentor to most politicians, including Governor Kayode Fayemi.
He added that Tinubu has invested massively in human development and has demonstrated over and again the capacity to manage human resources.
His words, “My first answer to your question is what party is Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in? Is it not the same family? So the man who spoke, saying they want Governor Fayemi to join the presidential race and that the party in Ekiti would force him if necessary, at what point, at which meeting was that decision taken? Where was the venue of the meeting? Where did he derive the authority to speak on behalf of the party? We are members of the party in Ekiti.”
“If anything happens in a family, are you saying members of the family would not know about it? In Yoruba land, if you want to be a king in your family, you must be a prince, and I’m also a prince, we are all entitled to kingship. You cannot bring somebody from another lineage to come and head our family. So, there must be a family meeting where a decision would be made and position made known. The man who spoke, spoke for himself and not the party, he only expressed his personal opinion which is not the position of the party in the state. He said all of you that went to the South-West Agenda meeting in Ibadan were all suspended members of the party.”
“If there is a divided house, the head would have to reconcile all the parties. What was our grouse? It was that things were not done well in the party, and we said things should be done properly and as stated in the party’s Constitution and the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. You can’t be a Christian and bring a Quran to be read in the church. No matter how good you are in the church, your members will revolt.”
“When you look at Tinubu’s antecedents, when then-President Olusegun Obasanjo withheld Lagos State allocations, was Lagos not paying salaries, were things not going well in Lagos? And look at everybody in Yoruba land in APC, mention one that Asiwaju did not mentor, including Governor Kayode Fayemi. Asiwaju has invested massively in human development and has demonstrated over and again the capacity to manage human resources.”
