The South West Agenda for Asiwaju, SWAGA, has claimed a former governor of Lagos State, Bola Ahmed Tinubu already has 12 to 13 million votes in his pocket, ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
A member of SWAGA, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye said Tunubu, an All Progressives Congress, APC, National Leader would replicate President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2015 feat, when he gannered 12 million votes from the North.
Speaking on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’, Adeyeye said: “Don’t forget that one of the selling points for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 was that he already had 12 million votes in his pocket (in previous elections) particularly in the North-West and North-East. So, it was easy with support from a few other places for him to win the presidency.
“We are also saying that come 2023, the man we are projecting (Tinubu) already has at least 12 to 13 million votes in his pocket and so it will be easy.”
He added: “When it comes to the issue of the presidency in 2023, all of these people in unison will shed every difference and vote for this man.
“The votes in the Southwest are more than 20 million votes. I am only saying 12 to 13 million votes are already assured and I say it with all sense of responsibility without fear of contradiction that those 12 to 13 votes are already in the bag,”
