The Lagos State chapter of the Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE) has claimed that the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Tinubu, will win the 2023 election.
In a communique issued at the end of its quarterly meeting, the YCE said that Tinubu would emerge as the next president in 2023 because he is a phenomenon in the world of politics.
The elders maintained that the APC presidential candidate is capable of leading the country despite the worsening insecurity and other challenges facing it.
The communique was signed by the Chairman, Francis Akinikawe, the Secetrary, Clement Fadipe, National Treasurer, Aremu Akindele and National Welfare Officer, Funmi Jabaru.
The elders added that Tinubu is the right person for the presidency, stressing that the former Governor of Lagos State stands for justice, fairness and national cohesion.
YCE pointed out that the APC presidential candidate would work assiduously to improve the well-being of Nigerians as he did in Lagos State by running an inclusive government.
The communique reads: “We believe that Tinubu is capable of leading the nation despite challenges of insecurity, economy downtown and we know he can turn the nation for the better.
“We want the world to know that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a phenomenon in the world of politics. We are not against anyone’s group or aspirations but all we are saying is that Asiwaju is the right person for the job.
“He is the best man for the job at this period of time. Our support for his candidacy burn out of his starling performances and track record of achievements over the years as fishers of men with just and equitable management of men and re-distribution of the available resources under his watch at every given opportunity.”
