Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun has called for unity and cohesion in the Southwest ahead of 2023 electioneering.
He called for a single-minded approach among All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders to ensure that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu becomes the presidential candidate, if he declares an intention to run.
Abiodun stated this while hosting a delegation of the South West Agenda (SWAGA) in his office in Abeokuta, the state capital.

He drew the attention of the delegation to the trend of political fifth columnists who he said were desperate to play spoiler roles on the promptings of anti-Southwest interests.
The governor warned that such elements would always come up with their nefarious scheming, adding that such elements within and outside the party should be effectively neutralised.
Abiodun supported the push for power shift to the Southwest in 2023, assuring that he would do all in his powers to work with stakeholders towards the attainment of the set objectives.
The leader of the SWAGA delegation, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, thanked Abiodun for receiving the delegation, despite the short notice.
The official launch of the Ogun State chapter of SWAGA is scheduled to hold today at Conference Hotel in Abeokuta
Recall that Adeyeye said Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu remains the best candidate to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
He made this known on Sunday, February 21, during a courtesy visit to the Palace of the Akarigbo and Paramount Ruler of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi.
The former minister of state for works speaking during the group’s visit noted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader is a good product that doesn’t need any advert.
In another report, Bioreports reported that Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker of the Lagos state House of Assembly said that anyone who succeeds in meeting expectations as a governor of Lagos state can preside over Nigeria successfully.
Obasa, who is one of those championing mobilisation in support of the presidential ambition of the national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu, made this known on Thursday, February 18.
The speaker urged Nigerians to support Tinubu’s ambition in 2023 for the greater Nigeria.
