A presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Kayode Fayemi, denied betraying former Lagos state governor, Asiawju Bola Tinubu, saying the office of the President is not an inheritance.
He said this on Wednesday during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, in Abuja.
Fayemi said that his decision to run for presidential seat was borne out of intention of driving the country on path of prosperity.
‘After careful consideration of where we are as a nation…I believe that my entry into the race will offer Nigerians the opportunity to examine competing visions for national rebirth,” Fayemi said.
“The Asiwaju that I know and have interacted with will not subscribe to demonising anyone. I don’t believe that he would use terminologies like betrayal,” he said. “This is not an inheritance; it is not a traditional title that we are seeking.”
“The office that we are seeking is to make a difference in the lives of Nigerians. It is about Nigeria which is the commonwealth of all Nigerians,” he said.
