2023: ‘Direct or Indirect, Tinubu will win APC Presidential Primary’ – SWAGA

The South-West Agenda for Asiwaju 2023, (SWAGA’23), has said that National Leader of the All Progressives Congress,(APC), and former Lagos State gover­nor, Asiwaju Bola Tinu­bu, will win the presidential primary of the ruling APC irrespective of the mode of primaries adopted by the party.

Speaking in an interview with newsmen, SWAGA’s National Secretary, Hon. Bosun Oladele, said the group during its formation has made provisions for whatever primaries the party will adopt by enlisting the support of former National Assembly members who are statutory delegates in the case of indirect primary and grassroots politicians who can effectively mobilise people in the case of direct primary.

According to him, “People have been talking about whether direct or indirect primary should be adopted. The idea is that every former member of the National Assembly, be it Senator or Reps are automatic statutory delegates”.

“With the benefit of hindsight, we also looked at the possibility of a direct primary where all party members will vote. So, we decided to bring in notable politicians at the grassroots level that have a bond with the people at the grassroots. These include former and serving local government chairmen, House of Assembly members, councillors and other party leaders that could mobilise support for Tinubu.

“That is why we have members who were not national assembly members in the group. That is the concept of SWAGA. At the time we were forming SWAGA, we just believed that we should have a political pressure group for advocacy on behalf of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. We were all driven by the passion to see what we can do for Asiwaju given the fact that he has done so much for the South-West and the progressive family”, he stated.
