The National Chairman, South West Agenda for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Senator Dayo Adeyeye has come out to say that the decision of Olusegun Obasanjo to back Peter Obi will not affect Tinubu’s victory in the February 25 election.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, APC can only dismiss Obasanjo’s endorsement of the Labour Party candidate because Tinubu’s record and contributions to nation-building in the last three decades will work in his favour above other contenders.

He then expressed confidence that SWAGA would deliver 14 million votes for the APC candidate in the South West.

His words, “Obasanjo’s endorsement of LP candidate will have absolutely no negative impact on the election of Asiwaju Tinubu; we are in the South West here and we know the politics of the region.”

“The former president, Chief Obasanjo, has the right to endorse any candidate, and it is also our constitutional right to support and canvass for whoever we like. I can tell you that the people of South West, even the people of Egba land where Obasanjo comes from, will vote massively for Tinubu and he will win.”

“As SWAGA, we have met over 300 traditional rulers in Yoruba land, and the candidate himself has done that too and all of them have endorsed him. Afenifere has endorsed him including all Yoruba leaders, what Obasanjo has done will not have any impact on the chances of Bola Tinubu in the forthcoming election.”

“The health of a man is in the hands of God. Let me tell you many who said President Muhammadu Buhari will die in 2015 have died.”
