The Minister for Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has disclosed that he is not silent over the presidential ambition of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
In an interview on Channels TV on Sunday, Fashola said he was playing his role as required for the actualisation of Tinubu’s presidential ambition.
When asked about his seeming silence and open support for the former Lagos governor, Fashola said he was given his support in the background and does not need to be in the public space to make his intervention or offer advice and suggestions.
He said: “I’m as involved as possible. I have been involved all through. I have played my role but people can decide whether it is quiet or not.
“I have been quiet because I have been minding my business. But I have played my roles all through and I don’t need to be in a public space to make my intervention or offer my advice and suggestions.
“But if at any point in time it becomes necessary for me to do so, I will do so.”
