Over 300 royal fathers from Southwest are said to be backing the presidential bid of ex-governor of Lagos State, Senator Bola Tinubu, for the Nigerian presidency in 2023.

Senator Dayo Adeyeye, the National Chairman of South West Agenda for Asiwaju for 2023, SWAGA, disclosed this in Gbongan, Osun state, during the launch of the group at Irewole Federal Constituency.

The group is seeking support for Tinubu ahead of the 2023 presidential poll.

Adeyeye, who called on the residents to support the push by the group to rally support for Tinubu, listed the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi and Alake of Egba, Oba Adedotun Aremu, as some of the royal fathers that had already backed Tinubu for the presidential project.

He said, “You are representatives of SWAGA and you must continue to advocate Tinubu for the presidential project. By the grace of God, Tinubu will emerge the next Nigeria’s president in 2023.

“All the traditional rulers in Yorubaland are supporting Tinubu, over 300 of them are backing him. From Ooni of Ife to Alaafin of Oyo, Alake and others. He is the best candidate that will come out of Yorubaland.”
