The All Progressives Congress, APC, national leader, Bola Tinubu, says he has no anointed candidate for the party’s ticket in the ongoing primary election in Ekiti state.
Tinubu spoke with journalists in Ikeja on Saturday as the APC held its ward congress in Lagos.
His words, “I believe those in charge of the primary in Ekiti will do the right thing. I have put my own political gear in neutral.
“I have no anointed candidate. Everyone there aspiring and contesting are very dear members and they deserve the right to participate.
“About 33 of them in all, and we only need one seat for governorship. We have had leadership discussions. I like the fact that they showed up respectfully and committed to the peace and stability of the party in that State.
“We have responsible leadership around there.
“Sincerely, I had wanted to be in Ekiti but when you have this situation where Congress is holding the same time their primary is holding, charity begins at home; I must stay in Lagos to ensure that I help them.
“There are capable leaders over there that will see to the smooth exercise of the primaries in Ekiti,” Tinubu said.
