Our correspondent reports that Tinubu and his supporters were in Ibadan to woo APC delegates ahead of the party’s presidential primary election.

 

The former governor of Lagos State said he was aware that there are some aggrieved members of the party in the state.

 

He, however, told the party and its gubernatorial candidate, Folarin to make peace, appeal and beg the aggrieved members before the general elections in 2023.

 

Tinubu who said that he will still come to Oyo State to meet the party members insisted that Folarin should make peace with other aspirants of APC to win the election.

 

He explained that APC cannot win the election with a divided house.

 

Tinubu said “Go and settle with the other members. I want you to settle with them, you will walk, you will beg. The house is divided into two.

 

“Let us end the crisis. I will still come to Ibadan later. If you don’t settle, you will lose.

 

“I want you to vote for me and the sons of my friends and Folarin. I come here to market myself and these people. Folarin will go and prostrate for the elders, he will beg. He will walk and go to houses to beg them. He will walk and succeed.

 

“You cannot win with a divided house”.
