Babatunde Bernard Tayo, widely known as Baba Tee, a beloved actor and comedian, has explained the reasons behind his endorsement and support for Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate who emerged victorious in the recent presidential elections.
During an episode of The Honest Bunch Podcast, Baba Tee candidly shared that he backed Tinubu due to his personal experience with the free education initiative implemented by Tinubu during his term as the governor of Lagos State.
Baba Tee emphasized that he willingly campaigned for Tinubu without receiving any form of compensation for his efforts.
“I campaigned for [Bola] Tinubu because I benefited from his free education, and security during RRS, nobody gave me money,” Baba Tee said.
“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.”
