The National Chairman of South West Agenda for 2023, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, has stated that nothing will stop Bola Tinubu from clinching the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He stated this while speaking in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday during the official launching of the South West Agenda (SWAGA) 2023, a political platform backing the presidential ambition of Tinubu.
Adeyeye, a former Minister of Works, stated that Bola Tinubu would grab the APC ticket of the ruling party zone it to the South in 2023.
According to him, the former Lagos State governor remains the best and the right man to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari based on his experience and political networks.
He also warned APC leaders to respect the zoning of presidency to the South in 2023, as a mark of respect for the silent agreement within the party at inception in 2013.
Adeyeye said: “And if the ticket comes to the South, the fact that the Southwest had produced the President before won’t prevent the Yoruba race from getting the APC ticket.
“You could all remember that the late President, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua was from Katsina State and when the ticket went back to the North in 2007, they picked President Muhammadu Buhari from Katsina. They didn’t say his state had produced President before.
“What we need in Nigeria is someone like Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who knows everybody.
“Someone who has planted and nurtured people across all the zones. Someone, who believes in making stars to unite Nigeria.”,
