Ajulo, the former National Secretary of Labour Party (LP), gave the advice while reacting to news of Tinubu’s visit to Babangida in Minna on Friday.

He said the ex-military president, who had experienced such a scenario was in the best position to advise the former Lagos State governor.

According to him, Babangida in 2007 after signifying his interest to run for the office of the president withdrew the bid for former President Umaru Yar’adua on the ground that Yar’adua was his younger brother.

“Tinubu is the political leader of Osinbajo. In fact, he was a major influence on how the VP got his present position and I am sure he’s proud of his numerous achievements.

“Tinubu will do well to throw his weight behind the VP to become the next President,” Ajulo said.
