2023: South West APC leaders call on Tinubu to join presidential race

Hundreds of notable leaders in the South West have called on the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to join the 2023 presidential race.

The call came in less than 24 hours after the Alaafin of Oyo, Lamidi Adeyemi III, endorsed Tinubu for the 2023 presidential poll.

The leaders made the call, yesterday, at the end of a meeting held by delegates from South West states of Oyo, Ogun, Osun, Ondo, Ekiti and Lagos in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The meeting, which also featured the launch and unveiling of logo of the South West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA ‘23), was graced by dignitaries, including the Chairman, Planning Committee of the movement, Dayo Adeyeye and a former member of House of Representatives, Bosun Oladele, from Oyo State, who is the secretary of the planning committee.

In a seven-point communique issued at the end of the meeting, signed by Adeyeye and Oladele, SWAGA ‘23 said the South West delegates agreed that in line with the political activities going on in the country, the region must not be left behind, being a politically conscious region of the country.

“The southern region of the country ought to produce the next president in the interest of fairness, justice, equity, peace and unity of Nigeria in accordance with the understanding freely reached among the founding leaders of APC at the formation of the party.

“The South West, being part of the southern region, has the right to contend the presidency like every other region in the South. The South West is very encouraged to contend the presidency as we have highly qualified, marketable, capable, passionate, active and suitable candidate for the presidential contest in 2023.”

Adeyeye, in his address, said SWAGA ‘23 would be launched in each state and ward in the South West for effective mobilisation, saying Tinubu has not commissioned them to embark on the mission. But they deemed it fit to do so because they want the best for Nigeria.

“For the discerning mind, 2023 election is already in the front burner of national discourse…,” he said.

This statement is funny because it is duplicitous and conflicting.

On the one hand it advocates for presidency to go to the "southern region" in the "interest of fairness, justice, equity, peace and unity of Nigeria". Yet, on the other hand it advocates for it to go to the only part of the so called southern region where in the past 20 years of Nigeria's current civilian dispensation has produced a two term (total of 8 years) president, and a two term (8 years) vice president.
Both have clocked in 16 years at the top. Yet these people talk about a "southern Nigeria". By that they mean "South West".

Well, in all honesty, such people may think that they are trying to keep Nigeria united through this type of politics, but my smart money is that this will likely quicken the disintegration of Nigeria, to produce two countries: a united country of south west and northern Nigeria called Nigeria, and a new country in the East yet to be named.

As a matter of fact it is likely that a new country will emerge in the East, because the Easterners have lost faith in this types of a Nigeria where treachery is embraced by even priests as a form of "sophistication".
