FORMER Minister of Works and National Chairman of South West Agenda for 2023, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, yesterday, declared that former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, remains the best candidate to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari, based on experience and political networks.
Adeyeye said this in Ado-Ekiti during the official launching of the South West Agenda, SWAGA 2023, a political platform rooting for the presidential aspiration of Asiwaju Tinubu.
Adeyeye said: “And if the ticket comes to the South, the fact that the Southwest had produced the President before won’t prevent the Yoruba race from getting the APC ticket.
“You could all remember that the late President Umaru Yar’Adua was from Katsina state and when the ticket went back to the North in 2007, they picked President Muhammadu Buhari from Katsina. They didn’t say his state has produced a President before.
“What we need in Nigeria is someone like Asiwaju Tinubu, who knows everybody. Someone, who has planted and nurtured people across all the zones, someone, who believes in making stars to unite Nigeria.”
