Buhari should support Tinubu for 2023, say Ondo monarchs

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 geo-political zone of the country ahead 2023 Presidency.

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 to be President of the country.

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 would support another person against Tinubu, stressing that the former Lagos State governor is a reasonable leader who can rule 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 the six states of the South-West geo-political zone would contradict the candidature of Tinubu.

He said that the only way the South-West could get it right was to support Tinubu.
