“I’m not aware of Jonathan running for presidency. I’m a father to him and he has not informed me about such intentions.
“The southwest is the most educated and sophisticated people in Nigeria, but Tinubu should go and rest. Other than the Igbos, I would vote for the Vice President; he is an intelligent fellow.
“How many times have we heard Tinubu talking about the affairs of this nation or criticising those in power?” he said.
Recall Tinubu had recently announced his intention to contest for president in 2023.
The former governor of Lagos State had informed President Muhammadu Buhari that his decision to run for the presidency was a “lifelong aspiration”.
