Ekiti State Former Governor, Ayodele Fayose has praised the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, describing him as one of the greatest builders of men in Yorubaland and Nigeria at large.
The PDP chieftain stated this on Saturday while speaking at his residence in Ekiti State as part of activities to mark his 60th birthday.
Fayoye said that Tinubu has paid his dues, which must be acknowledged, adding that his comment doesn’t mean he’s cross-carpeting so as not to reduce him politically.
“I am not championing the course of Tinubu, I am not in the position to do that, but there is no denying the fact that Tinubu is a prominent Yoruba leader, whether in APC or in PDP. There is no gainsaying that fact.
“What I am trying to say is that we can’t hide their identities and goodwill for political reasons. We can’t deny their contributions. Other leaders from the North like Ahmadu Bello made different impacts. So, Tinubu has paid his dues,” Fayose said.
