A House of Representatives member, James Faleke, has said presidential hopeful, Bola Tinubu was not afraid of the plan by former President Goodluck Jonathan to contest in the APC Presidential Primary.
Naija News earlier reported that the All Progressives Congres (APC) had reportedly granted Jonathan a waiver to contest the party’s presidential primary slated for Sunday, May 29.
Reacting to the development, Faleke said he was confident of Tinubu’s victory provided that the primary is conducted in a free and fair manner.
Speaking with The Punch, the lawmaker and founder of Tinubu Support Group said a transparent primary would be a condition for people not to leave the party.
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,” he said.
