All Progressives Congress National Leader and presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu has urged Senator Teslim Folarin, the APC governorship aspirant in Oyo state, to start begging all aggrieved members to win the 2023 general election.
Mouthpiece NGR reports that Tinubu issued this statement on Thursday when he visited Oyo state to woo delegates ahead of the party presidential primary election.
He said “This crowd is not enough to enthrone you as Governor. You’ll have to beg. You’ll have to meet people and beg them. Go and beg those you struggled it with.”
Our correspondent who monitored the event observed that everyone in the hall were silent and nodding heads when Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu issued the statement.
The former Lagos governor said he is in support of the decision of majority party members who elected the three term senators as the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the party’s candidate.
He urged them to reconcile themselves ahead of the election, saying that he would come back to talk to the aggrieved members on the need to shealth their sword.
He said he was going back to raise the hands of Folarin and campaign for him, advising Folarin to go back to pacify the aggrieved.
He later raised the hands of Adedapo Lam-Adesina; Idris Ajimobi and Olamiju Alao-Akala, APC candidates in Ibadan North East/South East; Ibadan Southwest 2 and Ogbomoso North/South/Oriire federal constituency, asking people to support them.
However, in his reaction, Senator Folarin said “Asiwaju will not agree that we will contest and not win. Baba will make sure we win OYO State back to the progressive.”
According to him, Asiwaju owns Oyo delegates.
He promised to show it in presidential primary Election result.
