Founding member of the Arewa Consultative Forum, Tanko Yakasai has revealed former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu sought his support for the 2023 presidential election.
According to the Punch, Yakasai said he would support the national leader of the All Progressive Congress, APC, after he visited him on Wednesday.
Yakasai said: “I don’t want to join any (political) party but I can support a candidate of my choice. I have said it way back in 1951 that I will not be a party member but I will support a candidate of my choice,”
“He (Tinubu) just came to visit me but actually I have two of them (presidential aspirants) that I have earmarked right from the beginning and I made a vow that any one of them who came to ask for my support first is the person I would support. Tinubu is the first person.
“He (Tinubu) did and he asked for my support,” Yakasai responded when asked if Tinubu told him of his presidential ambition.”
