In an exclusive interview with Channels Television on Sunday, Fayose emphasized the need for young people to be given a chance in Tinubu’s cabinet.

During the interview, Fayose expressed concern about the “stolen” future of the youth in the country and stressed the importance of providing them with opportunities to serve. He firmly stated, “I’m not looking for a position. I will never take it [referring to ministerial appointments].”

“If I want to be honest with you, any of us that have reached the age of 65 and above, Asiwaju should tell us to go and bring our children.

“Already, their future had been stolen. The future of these young people had already been stolen.”

Fayose, a prominent member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), during the interview also revealed that he had supported Tinubu in his bid for the presidency.

He said his support for Tinubu was based on the principle that it is the turn of the southern region of the country to produce the president.

He explained that his decision not to actively campaign for the PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, was rooted in his conflicts with the party.

The former governor highlighted the party’s suspension of himself and his son as the primary reason for his withdrawal of support.

“I never worked for the PDP during the last elections. I cannot work for two people at the same time,” Fayose said.

“The reality is that I worked for Asiwaju. He is a respectable person from the southwest. It is the time of the South.

“The same PDP, because I said it was the turn of the south, they dissolved the party excos, suspended and expelled my son alongside myself.”
