Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader has received additional support for the 2023 presidency.
On Monday, his mobilization platform, South-West Agenda (SWAGA) for ‘Bola Tinubu 2023’, secured the endorsement of traditional rulers in Ikeja.
Adedayo Adeyeye, the National Chairman noted that zoning of the APC presidential ticket to the South would bring unity among all regions.
The former Ekiti South Senator said the group believed that the principle of North-South rotation should be sustained to give every part of Nigeria a sense of belonging.
Adeyeye stressed that each of the three geopolitical zones in the South can produce candidates of their choice.
“But we are saying there is someone highly acceptable in all parts of the country. Even though every part will present their candidates, we have put the best foot forward.
“We have heard what the traditional rulers said in all the six states in the zone. Now, we want to move to the other geopolitical zones”, said the former Minister of State (Works).
The Head, Ikeja Division of Obas and Onigando of Igando, Oba Lasisi Gbadamosi described Tinubu, as the most qualified presidential candidate.
Gbadamosi announced that the 65 monarchs in Ikeja had endorsed Tinubu and prayed that God would give him the grace to attain the position.
Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, said the former Lagos Governor possesses the qualities to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
Represented by Oba Tijani Akiloye, the Ajiran of Ajiranland in Eti-Osa, Akiolu assured that all traditional rulers in Lagos were in full support of Tinubu.
The endorsement followed a similar one by all the traditional rulers in Badagry.
