Babatunde Bernard Tayo popularly known as Baba Tee, has revealed why he supported the ambition of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The actor said he campaigned for Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress candidate, in the 2023 election, because he benefited from his free education initiative in Lagos State.
Baba Tee explained his reason for backing APC when he appeared as a guest during a recent episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast.
He said that before Tinubu served as governor of Lagos state, insecurity was very high but he was able to tackle it using RRS and other security apparatus.
According to Baba Tee, the campaign he did for Tinubu was pro bono, so he never received any payment from him or the party.
He said; “I campaigned for [Bola] Tinubu because I benefited from his free education, and security during RRS, nobody gave me money.
“We used to suffer from a lot of insecurity back then. Hoodlums will send letters that they are coming to terrorise a particular area and they will indeed come. Nightlife in Lagos then was hellfire. But when Tinubu came, Lagos was reformed.
“My mum who was a petty trader was also a victim of the robbery in Lagos then. Tinubu actually eradicated insecurity in Lagos. And because of that I supported him in the presidential election out of my own free will.”
