Former Minister of Works and National Chairman of South West Agenda for 2023, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, has maintained that the All Progressives Congress (APC) policy of zoning for the 2023 presidency would not become a hindrance to the political ambition of Bola Tinubu.
According to Senator Dayo Adeyeye, Bola Tinubu would come out as the party’s candidate who would lead the party to victory in 2023. He opined that the South West has clinched power in the past but it does not stop it from witnessing another son of the land to be elected as president in the zoning. Adeyeye spoke at the official launch of the South West Agenda (SWAGA) 2023.
He said: “And if the ticket comes to the South, the fact that the South-West 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 a 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,”
“Before SWAGA was formed, we had ‘Tokan Tokan’ and original ‘JKF’, which are outfits loyal to Fayemi.
“Is it an offence to associate with one of the foremost Nigerians like Tinubu? We are being treated here in Ekiti like orphans in the Sahara desert. We are being intimidated and harassed by people who have contributed nothing to APC.”
