Elder statesman and former leader of pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, has expressed support for the presidential ambition of former governor of lAgos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Speaking while receiving in audience members of the South West Agenda for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, SWAGA 23, who paid him a courtesy visit in his country home in Akure, Fasoranti said, “Tinubu has all it takes to rule Nigeria. Considering his activities and track record, he deserves to be President, come 2023.
“May his prayers be answered. When he gets there, he will do all we want.”

The former Commissioner for Finance in old Ondo State stated that with Tinubu as President, all the prayers of Afenifere for Nigeria will be answered, particularly on the issue of restructuring and federalism.

Speaking earlier, the Chairman and Coordinator of SWAGA, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said Yoruba must unite and speak with one voice ahead of 2023 presidential race.

He urged the Yoruba race not to divide its house ahead of the presidential election.
The former Minister of State for Works said that more than 50 traditional rulers across the six states of the South-West geo-political zone had been visited for their royal blessings.

He added that the Presidency would be zoned to the South in 2023, hence the need to quickly start the movement for Yoruba to unite.

He added, “Tinubu has all it takes to rule the country, being a detribalised Nigerian, who loves the masses and is blessed with enormous wisdom.”

Adeyeye, however, stated that the team was not sent by Tinubu, but that it decided to take up the role, having found the former governor of Lagos State worthy, because of his leadership quality.
