Olubadan described Tinubu as a “good man”, adding that he would consolidate on the progressive agenda of the APC
The Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji has said chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) , Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will make a good president.
Although Tinubu is yet to make any public pronouncement on his interest in taking a shot at the presidency, the News Agency of Nigeria quoted the Ibadan monarch saying he will support him if he chooses to contest the nation’s number one office.
Oba Adetunji was said to have expressed his support while receiving members of the Tinubu Vanguard in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, on Saturday.
Johnny Benjamin, director-general of Tinubu Vanguard, made the development known in a statement.
According to the statement, Olubadan described Tinubu as a “good man”, adding that he would consolidate on the progressive agenda of the APC and propel Nigeria to the path of economic prosperity and sustainable development.
“Tinubu is a good man and I will do everything within my power to support his candidacy for the 2023 presidential poll,” he was quoted as saying.
The director-general of Tinubu Vanguard said the members of the group visited the monarch to make him aware of their intention to deliver a Tinubu presidency in 2023 and to seek his blessing.
Benjamin said the group is committed to ensuring that the Tinubu presidential mandate is actualised.
