Former Lagos State governor and APC national leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is becoming a big contender for the presidential elections with each passing day and it appears some groups are already throwing their weight behind him.
Recently, presidential election support group, South-West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA), has said that the National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has what it takes to rescue the country out of its current political and economic crises.
Chairman of SWAGA, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye and his deputy, Senator Rilwanu Soji Akanbi, while addressing the media, yesterday, said the position of president of Nigeria is too important to be awarded to anybody who did not really strive or prepare for it in the South. For the chairman, the position is too sensitive for anyone to “just ” take or occupy.
He said: “We believe in the national leader’s capacity based on how he governed Lagos State. I also want to say that if the South refuses to start preparing and indicate strong interest from now, the Presidency may eventually not be zoned to the region.
Adeyeye posited that what SWAGA is doing has no political party affiliation, adding: “We are not afraid if the ruling party throws its presidential ticket open. We have nothing against anybody, including the South-East and interested candidates from the North. Our position is that Tinubu for now is the best material for the job and he is also determined to see a better Nigeria.
Do you think Tinubu is the best person for the job?
