2023: We’re waiting for Asiwaju Tinubu to take ‘important’ decisions – Akeredolu

The Chairman of the Southern Governors’ Forum, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has described the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as the Capo di tutti of the South.

The Ondo State Governor maintained that the next president of the country must come from the Southern region.

Akeredolu spoke during an interview on Arise Television on Sunday.

Speaking on his visit to Tinubu in the United Kingdom and the 2023 elections, Akeredolu said his visit has nothing to do with the polls.

He said: “APC is a party.

“APC will decide who the candidate will be.

“I have made the point everywhere: I’m going nowhere.

“I’m not going to leave APC.

“If I leave APC, I am going back to my chamber where I am more comfortable.

“For me, whatever APC decides, I will follow.

“…We went to visit our National Leader and I was there because there were a lot of rumours here and there.

“It was important for us to go and see for ourselves.

“And I was there, I have seen for myself and there is nothing alarming about his health.

“We are praying that he returns back on time.

“He’s the capo for us here in the South West and South-South.

“So we are waiting for him to come so that by the time he comes, we can make some important decisions and he’ll support us.”
