The South West Agenda for Asiwaju 2023 (SWAGA’23) has distanced itself from the one million-person walk in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital in solidarity with the 2023 presidential race of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, former Lagos State Governor and national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). The rally, scheduled for December 1 2021 is being organised by the Coalition of Support Groups for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu (COSGABAT). Even though SWAGA’23 is listed as one of the support groups participating in the one million march, Otunba Bosun Oladele, the National Secretary of SWAGA in an interview with DAILY INDEPENDENT said the Central Working Committee of the group are not aware of such plans to hold a one million march and as such, will not be participating in it. He said while they are not stopping any group canvassing support for Asiwaju Tinubu’s candidacy from doing so, a one million march is not part of the agenda of SWAGA’23 and its affiliates in selling Tinubu’s candidacy to Nigerians. “Every group agitating for Asiwaju Tinubu are free to do their own thing in whatever way they like. We are not the licensing authority. We are not also the clearinghouse. What we are saying is that as of now, no other group has contacted us at the leadership level of SWAGA’23. We are not involved in the one million march”. “If we have any such plan in the nearest future or as part of a long-term plan, definitely, in our own manner of doing things, Nigerians will know”. “I am the National Secretary of SWAGA’23. I can tell you authoritatively that nobody has contacted the Central Working Committee of SWAGA ’23 as a body. Nobody has contacted any of our affiliates and even if we are contacted, we will have to consider it at that level”. “We don’t rush into making decisions, especially when it is not our idea or part of our plans from the onset. But we are not stopping those groups or any other group from doing whatever they want to do in promoting Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. He is our principal and he is the person we are working on to declare his interest in the Nigerian presidency. So, we will stick with our own plans” he said.
