Yoruba elders across the country have thrown their weight behind the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
They said the former Lagos State governor is qualified to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in next year’s election, assuring that he will make a difference as a leader.
To them, Tinubu has the pedigree and antecedent, having served credibly as a senator in the Third Republic and two-term governor of the Centre of Excellence.
The elders, under the aegis of the Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE), said Tinubu’s efforts at stabilizing democracy in Nigeria were enough to earn him victory in 2023.
The council said this in a communiqué after its quarterly meeting in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
The communiqué was signed by its Chairman, Mr. Francis Akinikawe; Secretary, Chief Clement Fadipe; National Treasurer, Aremu Akindele and National Welfare Officer, Mrs. Funmi Jabaru.
