"When we get to the election, Asiwaju is a formidable, experienced person, the type that could contest the presidency in any country. There will be others too who will come and the people will decide who they prefer. They will look at their pedigree and background."
No ethnic group should marginalise others
The ex-senator said that those who believe the country belongs to an exclusive class should learn the lesson that they cannot hold it for long.
He added that the youth would have confidence and faith in their own future, adding that they seem to have no faith.
Durojaiye further noted:
"Most things that are at the federal level should be devolved and then when we have an election, it will be smooth sailing. We will be able to take the most experienced and competent candidates at that time. We don’t know how many are coming yet. But I have nothing against Asiwaju."
