According to Senator Dayo Adeyeye, the national chairman of the South West Agenda for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the choice of former President Olusegun Obasanjo could not in any way influence Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s win in the election on February 25.
“Tinubu’s record and achievements to nation-building in the previous three decades will work in his favor above other contestants,” Adeyeye stated in response to Obasanjo’s Sunday endorsement of Labour Party candidate Peter Obi.
The SWAGA chairman stated confidence that SWAGA would deliver 14 million votes for the APC candidate in the South West while speaking at a party for members of the campaign group in Ekiti, Ondo, Kogi, and other states in Ado Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State.
The APC chieftain, who is the Director of Support Groups in the party’s Presidential Campaign Council, said, “Obasanjo’s endorsement of LP candidate will have absolutely no negative impact on the election of Asiwaju Tinubu; we are in the South West here and we know the politics of the region.
“The former president, Chief Obasanjo, has the right to endorse any candidate, and it is also our constitutional right to support and canvass for whoever we like. I can tell you that the people of South West, even the people of Egba land where Obasanjo comes from, will vote massively for Tinubu and he will win.
“As SWAGA, we have met over 300 traditional rulers in Yoruba land, and the candidate himself has done that too and all of them have endorsed him. Afenifere has endorsed him including all Yoruba leaders, what Obasanjo has done will not have any impact on the chances of Bola Tinubu in the forthcoming election,” he said.
Adeyeye, countering health issues added, “The health of a man is in the hands of God. Let me tell you many who said President Muhammadu Buhari will die in 2015 have died.”
