Ahead of 2023 presidential election, supporters of Bola Tinubu, Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has reportedly set up a presidential campaign council on his behalf.

According to a report by The Cable, this comes 24 hours after loyalists of the APC national leader led by Dayo Adeyeye, former minister of state for works, visited Lamidi Adeyemi, the Alaafin of Oyo, on Monday.

The group said they were at the palace to seek support for the 2023 presidential ambition of Tinubu.

They were said to have moved ahead to set up a presidential campaign council on Tuesday in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, to push for Tinubu’s candidature.

The campaign council tagged, ‘The South-West Agenda’, was said to include Musiliu Obanikoro, former minister of defence; Adesoji Akanbi, senator representing Oyo south; and Abayomi Ogunnusi, former house of representatives member.

“Our mission is political. Politics has started and everyone is scrambling. We, the Yoruba people, see it as our turn because it is the agreement that presidency would be rotational,” Adeyeye had said.

“We have both written and unwritten contracts. After President Muhammadu Buhari’s eight years, it is the turn of the Yoruba.

“In the south, we have south-east, south-south and south-west. We have a joker in the south-west and the joker is Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who was part of the struggle for democracy. There are fundamentals of governance and we want someone who is versed in politics to go into the race. We see that Asiwaju Tinubu has the clout and he is qualified.”
