A popular Nigerian activist, Deji Adeyanju, has indicated that Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, will not have the support of members of the party from the core north as he aspires to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari come 2023.
He further said that APC members from the core north, who are nursing ambitions to become President in 2023, are laughing at Tinubu.
Adeyanju was responding to Femi Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who had earlier attacked Tinubu over his (Tinubu) broadcast ahead of the Saturday’s governorship election in Edo State.
Recall that Tinubu had in his broadcast asked the people of Edo State to reject Godwin Obaseki, candidate of the PDP.
Fani-Kayode in his reaction said the broadcast served as nothing but comic relief, adding Tinubu may make Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu lose the governorship election.
The activist while reacting, said, “The irony of it all is that the core Northerners in APC with presidential ambitions are laughing at him.”
