The chairman of the South-West Governors’ Forum, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, has said the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is capable of leading Nigeria.
Akeredolu stated this during a visit to Tinubu’s residence at Bourdillon, in Ikoyi, Lagos, on Tuesday.
He said the governors in the South-West region believe in the leadership of the former Lagos State governor.
“We held the South-West Governors’ Forum meeting. After the meeting, we deemed it fit to come over and visit our leader, who has returned home successfully and is hale and hearty.
“We have come to show our love for him and thank God on his behalf.
“He has been receiving visitors here. This place has turned into Mecca. We are here as part of the pilgrims.
“The National leader of APC remains one. Most of us in the Southwest believe in his leadership and it shows that he’s doing his best to lead us.
“He is not only the leader of the Southwest but also the National leader of the APC in Nigeria. But we in the Southwest first lay claim to him as our leader,” Akeredolu said.
