Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is throwing his weight behind APC Chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu presidency, ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Speaking on Thursday at the launch of the Southwest Agenda 2023 (SWAGA ‘23, a campaign group for Tinubu’s presidential ambition), Sanwo-Olu said: “Asiwaju Tinubu’s story has been a legend in vision, passion and action. These three values stand him out among his contemporaries in national politics today.
“It is no wonder the man stretches his arm of fellowship beyond Lagos, the state he led for eight years as a governor and in which he bequeathed the legacy we are building on. He is nationalist in thinking and progressive in action.”
Sanwo-Olu added that SWAGA is a movement that encapsulates the Tinubu philosophy.
He also noted that the agenda of the group, which is for Tinubu to emerge as Nigeria’s president in 2023, will be “brought to a logical end.”
“The SWAGA we are launching in Lagos today is a demonstration of Tinubu’s enduring political principles and strong vision,” he said.
“Those behind the movement took the three values and push them with passion. What we are witnessing today is the action from the vision and passion; this is what SWAGA represents.
“By the grace of God, we will drive this agenda to a logical end and we will all witness the inauguration of our political icon come 2023,” he added.
Also speaking at the event, Lagos Deputy Governor Obafemi Hamzat, said Tinubu is capable of transforming Nigeria.
“If we want true progress, employment, security and development, we all know who is capable of creating these opportunities for us. He is Asiwaju,” Hamzat said.
