“Although I’ve not decided, I’m just telling you. And because of the things he has done for my industry. I’m not gonna use my own interest to lead others.
“He has been a wonderful man to my people. He has been there for people even when they had nothing. I am speaking for my own Oluwatoyin Abosede Dada Abraham Ajeyemi.
“Let people choose whoever they want to choose. I will not let people use the gender part of me. I will support anyone who supports everybody. Someone competent.
“I’m not going to jeopardise the future of our children because of gender part or because I have a colleague there”.
However, her position has generated several reactions on social media.
Reacting on Twitter, SPACE (D12) @mertromat wrote: “She is voting him, but can’t openly declare her decision because of the headless mob”.
