Ayo Fayose says he will not come out to insult and attack the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to prove that he is supporting the PDP candidate.
Fayose, a chieftain of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and former governor of Ekiti State made the comment on Thursday while answering questions on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
He said: “Let me tell you: if people are expecting me to abuse Tinubu to show that I am not supporting him, I would not do that,” he said during the show.
“If the only way to demonstrate to everybody that I am Bola Tinubu’s enemy is to come out as a Yoruba man and insult Bola Tinubu, I will never do it,” he added.
“Listen to me, Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu are over 70 years old leaders, why were they sitting together to rub minds and did not carry cutlasses against it each other? Count me out of that (insulting Tinubu).”
“I am not going to be insulting Atiku,” Fayose insisted. “I am not going to be insulting Tinubu.”
