2023: “I Will Start Supporting Tinubu” – Fayose
Ahead of the 2023 election, Isaac Fayose, younger brother to former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said that he will start supporting Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that according to Fayose, being a Yoruba, he finds it “stressful” backing a presidential candidate of Igbo extraction considering people from that part of Nigeria ‘do not trust him’.
“Supporting Peter Obi is so stressful for a Yoruba person.
“The Igbos don’t trust themselves so how do I even expect them to trust me.
“I gave my hotel, time, money, sometimes my food bank and my space they still abuse me everyday,” he wrote on his known Facebook page
Following this post, a Facebook user accused him of secretly supporting Tinubu and working against Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to which he replied: “I will start supporting Tinubu now….He is my Yoruba brother.”
