Former Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, recently spoke about Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in an interview on Fresh FM in Ibadan, as reported by the Nigerian Tribune. Fayose predicted that if Tinubu leads the All Progressives Congress (APC) alone, his government will be worse than former President Olusegun Obasanjo's. He added that Tinubu's situation will be even worse if he becomes the president of the Southwest alone.
Fayose stated that he is not in a position to set an agenda for Tinubu but urged him to prioritize the re-ordering of the Yoruba nation by including everyone who is Yoruba and making them feel a sense of belonging.
He noted that things went wrong in the Southwest after the deaths of most Yoruba leaders and emphasized that it is crucial for Tinubu to carry all Yorubas along if he wishes to be remembered positively.
Fayose concluded by advising Tinubu not to choose someone solely for the benefit of his party members but to ensure that representatives of the opposition are included in his appointments. The former governor's remarks highlight the importance of inclusiveness and unity in politics, especially in a diverse and complex country like Nigeria.
