The support group of presidential aspirant, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has reacted to reports that former President Goodluck Jonathan might emerge as the All Progressives Congress, APC, consensus presidential candidate.
The presidential aspirant reacted through the founder of Tinubu support group, James Faleke.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) reportedly granted a waiver to Jonathan to contest the party’s presidential primary slated for Sunday, May 29.
Faleke, while speaking to Punch, explained that he is confident that Tinubu would emerge as the winner provided that the primary is conducted in a free and fair election
He added that those supporting Jonathan and visiting him were free to do so, adding that it is the right of the former Nigerian leader to join the party and to contest.
“For us, we are still very confident of victory in a free and fair election whether Jonathan is brought in or not, we are confident. It is the right of Jonathan to join our party and to contest.
“As to whether the party will go back and praise Jonathan is another ball game. We are not afraid. We have our capacity. Let the process be free and fair and fair. That is the only thing that can make this party great.
“What we expect is for our party to follow the Electoral Act. It is their personal right of those visiting him to do.”
