Northern Elder Statesman, Tanko Yakasai has declared his support for the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Yankasai while speaking in an interview with Sun Newspaper alleged that Asiwaju is not the only choice that he would have opted for ahead of the 2023 election. He stated that Peter Obi and BAT were his two preferred choices because they both came from the South.
However, Yankasai claimed that he had purported in his heart that any presidential candidate who visits him first among the two would be the person he will support in the election. He acknowledged that Tinubu was the first who came to his house to seek for his blessings. According to him, the value being placed on him by the former governor of Lagos is enough for him to make his personal decision.
