A member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Akin Alabi has taken his support for the ruling party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, to another level.
The member of the House of Representatives argued that he would gladly let Tinubu control his life because he believes in his competence.
Alabi had tweeted a poster campaigning for Tinubu, which attracted comments from his followers on the microblogging platform.
A Twitter user, @idoreyin14, asked Alabi if he would allow the APC Presidential candidate to run his family affairs.
The user wrote, “With due respect, sir. Party aside. Can you let Tinubu run your family affairs? If you weren’t in APC, would you gladly vote Tinubu?”
Responding, Alabi said he would let Tinubu run his life and that of his family affairs.
He said: “I can let Tinubu run my life. I will even beg him to run it. Shows how much I believe in him. Even if I was a member of Labour Party, I would still support him.”
