Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has arrived the campaign ground in support for the National leader of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu ahead of the 2023 presidency.
A video captured by NewswireNgr showed the governor alighting the vehicle on Thursday to a rousing welcome from a group loyal to Tinubu.
The group named South West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA) was officially launched today in Lagos State.
Tinubu is rumoured to be interested in succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023. But the influential politician is yet to make any public pronouncement.
The public launch of SWAGA in Lagos was attended by the state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and hundreds of Tinubu loyalists.
Tinubu himself is in London where he is recuperating after undergoing surgery and is reportedly set to return on Sunday.
“With serious determination to succeed, Lagos shall stand still for Swaga 23,” said the leader of the group Dayo Adeyeye.
SWAGA’23 has already been launched in Oyo, Ogun, Osun and Ekiti.
“It is indeed a payback time for our national leader, who had through his years of service contributed to the lives of many others and today you can see his footprints across the country,” SWAGA said in a statement.
“We shall continue to appeal to him to contest for the position of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria because governance is not what to be experimented with.
“Therefore, we need viable, experienced and a man who understands the diverse nature of Nigerian economy.”
