The South-West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA) 2023 says that political campaigns of the All Progressives Congress ( APC) show that the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is accepted by generality of the people of Nigeria.
Sen. Dayo Adeyeye, the National Chairman of SWAGA, stated this during a donation of three buildings as secretariats to Tinubu in Ore, Okitipupa and Ode Irele in Ondo State on Wednesday.
Adeyeye who had earlier addressed APC members and supporters at Ore, in Odigbo local government of Ondo state, explained that Tinubu was very out-working other presidential candidates in political campaigns .
SWAGA is a support group rooting for the presidential candidate of Tinubu.
A former lawmaker and Deputy Chairman of SWAGA in the state, Mr Albert Akintoye, donated the secretariats in the South senatorial district of ondo state.
“ I am very satisfied with the way the campaign is progressing. Everywhere, Asiwaju is accepted by the generality of the people.
“The campaign is gaining ground everyday here in the southwest. We at the SWAGA started this and we have promised that we are going to deliver 14 million votes to Asiwaju and that promise still stand and we will even surpass the number.
“So, we are happy with the campaign. Asiwaju is out working other contestants. Of course he is consulting more than all of them. So, our campaign is number one in Nigeria,” he stated.
Adeyeye, who described Chief Olusegun Obasanjo’s endorsement of Mr Peter Obi as a mere personal opinion, said that APC was getting stronger and more formidable for the 2023 election.
The chairman of SWAGA noted that the former president was entitled to his own opinion and that Obasanjo could only cast one vote.
According to him, people of Nigeria already know the worths of the APC presidential candidate.
He added that Tinubu had vision,passion and actions to take Nigeria to the promise lane.
“ They know he is the man meant for this moment to change the trajectory of Nigeria so that we begin to embark on a new journey to rapid socio-economic development.
“ So, we are not bothered about that. Like any other Nigerian is entitled to his opinion, Chief Obasanjo is entitled to his opinion too.
“ We know that at the end of the day, we are going to prevail in the election,” Adeyeye said.
Also speaking, the Founder of SWAGA, Mr Oyetunde Ojo, asked people of the SouthWest to support Tinubu’s ambition by considering his capabilities to transform Nigeria.
Ojo asked Tinubu’s supporters to go out and inform people that Tinubu was the best man to rescue the country from its multifaceted challenges.
He explained that Nigeria’s challenges were not irredeemable but needed someone like Tinubu that had vision, passion and action to salvage it.
In his remarks, the state SWAGA Chairman, Hon. Ifedayo Abegunde, asked for more mobilization and campaign for the party’s candidate so that APC would win convincingly in the forthcoming elections.
Abegunde, who commended the donor of the campaign secretariats, appealed to supporters of the party to come out en masse on the day of election and vote, adding that elections could only be won at the polling units.
Speaking on the reason for giving out the building structures to Tinubu’s campaign, Akintoye said that if Tinubu emerged come February, there would be great succour and relief to people of Nigeria.
He, therefore, tasked all leaders and supporters of the party to give their quotas towards Tinubu’s emergence in the coming presidential election.
