Being a leader should prepare and organize one to be tolerant and diplomatic, taking sides as a public figure would only destroy your mentorship and opportunities to Influence the region positively. In case your chosen candidates do not make it, how do you perform successfully as a minister?, it’s actually shameful, he has the right to opt for a candidate but not to play tribal cards showcasing instances where some tribes were favored than others”.
