Cross River state Governor, Ben Ayade has stated that Former Lagos Governor and National leader of the All Progressives, Bola Ahmed Tinubu deserves to contest for President because he has worked hard for his party.
Ayade in a recent interview with BBC Pidgin, monitored by Politic Nigeria, disclosed that Tinubu was right to indicate interest in the party’s 2023 presidential ticket because he worked hard to install the current government in power.
When asked about Tinubu’s aspirations, Ayade said; “If you ask me for Bola Tinubu, i go say e dey correct say he come out. The man work hard, e struggle, e fight, e support Buhari to put this government wey dey in place. So for man wey dey work hard like that you go expect say now wey be the turn of the south, make im try.”
“God give am opportunity, e go try im best. Me i no go say e no good as e come out say e wan run or make e no run, i no go talk like that.”
He added that he is waiting for the party to decide, adding that if the party decides on Tinubu, he will gladly support him but that if the party does not, he will ensure that the party goes to ‘beg and pacify’ the Lagos politician.
