Former Minister of State for Works, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, has in an interview with Saturday Sun, said National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is the right man for the top job if Nigeria wants to recover from its current challenges, and head north.
Adeyeye while describing Tinubu as a “dynamic, forward-looking, and experienced” personality, said the country is currently at a “crossroads” and only Tinubu could provide the needed “right leadership at this time”.
Adeyeye is the Chairman, Planning Committee, South West Agenda for Asiwaju Tinubu 2023 (SWAGA ’23), a movement recently launched in Ibadan, Oyo State, which endorsed the former Lagos governor for the next presidential election.
Explaining the choice of Tinubu, Adeyeye, said, “Nigeria at this present time needs very dynamic, forward looking, and experienced leader. Nigeria is at a crossroads and we have looked and searched and discovered that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu towers above every other politician in this country to offer the right leadership at this present time.
“This is why we are so much interested in the interest of Nigeria. It is not a selfish South West Agenda. It is actually in the national interest of Nigeria that we are making this effort to project him, to market him, and to sell him to other Nigerians.
“We believe that he is a fantastic product that we can market and sell, and that other Nigerians will embrace what we have seen, and also join the mass movement to support and ensure his victory at the poll.”
Adeyeye explained that Tinubu did not instigate them to start SWAGA ’23.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has not commissioned us to embark on this mission. It is not even his idea, it is not his problem.
“It is we who believe in his leadership and that he is going to make a tremendous impact in the life of this country if he is at the helm of affairs.
“We believe that he will offer an unequalled leadership, especially at a time like this in Nigeria. This is why we have started sensitising people to the idea, and that is what we are doing and we will continue. It is not too early to do that.”
