Isaac Fayose, younger brother to ex-Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Thursday said Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), currently has the highest chance of victory at the 2023 poll.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that according to Fayose, presently, Tinubu’s odds of winning is 42%, Labour Party’s Peter Obi is 32%, and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP’s) Atiku Abubakar is 26%.
He stressed that he remains a supporter of Obi, a former governor of Anambra State, but he criticised the Biafra agitation and sit-at-home exercise observed in Nigeria’s southeast region.
“As at today, October 6, 2022, Tinubu is still leading, leading so far, because he has structure, he has the money, and he has the goodwill. And don’t forget I said in my old videos that he is a ‘City Boy’. You know why Obi is still second? The Igbos in the East are not helping matters,” Fayose said in a video posted on his known Facebook page.
“As long as you still do your sit-at-home, as long as you keep breaking our tents from campaigning, Obi will be second, Atiku will be third.
“Tinubu is leading now because the Igbos are not cooperating. They are breaking tents, they don’t allow them to campaign, and the bulk of the votes is coming from there.
“You said you want Biafra, you don’t have ports. How can you want Biafra when the Igbos that are living outside the Igboland are more than the Igbos that are in Igboland? You want them to be taking visa? You better change?”
