We must pray for Tinubu to win 2023 presidency — Fani-Kayode says

Former Aviation Minister and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Femi Fani-Kayode, has explained why he is drumming support for the presidential bid for the party’s standard bearer, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima.

He equally called on Nigerians to join him in supporting the former Lagos State governor.

Fani-Kayode in a lengthy post on his verified Facebook page, explained why it is expedient for Nigerians to support Tinubu.

He said: “A few months before the APC Northern Governors took their stand, the Southern Governors had met in Asaba across party lines and they all agreed that power must shift to the South in 2023.

“This was a bold and audacious move which formed part of the basis and an additional reason and incentive for the Northern APC Governors to make their concession and take their noble stand a few months later.

“Apart from the earlier stated reasons they also did so out of deference and respect to the wishes of their Southern counterparts in the party who, led by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, continued to insist that the agreement to shift power to the South must not be breached under any circumstances.

“Unlike two or three of the Southern Governors in the PDP who sadly broke ranks and dishonored their word by supporting a Northern candidate at their party convention, the APC Northern and Southern Governors never wavered. They stood to the last man, they stood firm and they delivered.
