Traditional rulers in Ondo State have declared that now is the time for President Muhammadu Buhari and all northerners to reciprocate the support enjoyed from the South-West geopolitical zone ahead of the 2023 Presidential elections.
The Abodi of Ikaleland, Oba George Faduyile, who received the South-West Agenda (SWAGA) delegation in his palace at Ikoya, Okitipupa Local Council, alongside other monarchs from the area, yesterday, said Tinubu is capable of being President of Nigeria.
The delegation visited the palaces of Abodi, the Osemawe of Ondo Kingdom, Oba (Dr.) Victor Kiladejo and the elder statesman and leader of the socio-political group, Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, in his Akure residence.
Oba Faduyile noted that it would be wicked and saddening if the Northerners choose to support another person rather than the Jagaban, stressing that the former Lagos State governor is a discerning leader who can govern the country.
“Tinubu has been supporting President Muhammad Buhari and the North for years, now is the time for the North and Buhari to reciprocate the good political gesture and support him,” he said.
According to him, no traditional ruler in all six South-Western states would contradict the candidature of Tinubu.
