Some leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-West on Sunday reportedly visited Ogun State to seek support for the presidential aspiration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the APC, ahead of 2023.
The leaders includes a former Minister of State for Works and Chairman of South West Agenda 23, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, Senators Gbenga Obadara, Soji Akanbi, former Commissioner for Information in Oyo State, Bosun Oladele, the immediate past Speaker of Ogun State House of Assembly, Suraj Adekunbi and a former House of Representatives member from Ogun State, Ishiaq Abiodun Akinlade, among others.
They visited the palace of the Akarigbo and Paramount Ruler of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, to seek his royal blessing.
Speaking at the palace of Oba Ajayi, Adeyeye noted that Tinubu is the best man for the job.
“Tinubu is a good product that doesn’t need any advertisement and he has contributed greatly to the growth and development of the nation. He is a consummate democrat and a progressive.
“We have three geo-political zones in the South and all of them have the right to contest for the presidency. South West is interested to contest for the presidency in 2023. The person who can help us win this ticket is Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
“He has done a lot for Nigerians irrespective of religion and tribe. He has built bridges across the country. We gathered together to start campaigning for him. If we can hold our house together, we will have the presidency back in the South West,” the former minister said.
In his response, Oba Ajayi offered prayers for the success of Tinubu’s aspiration in 2023.
