Alaafin Supports Tinubu for 2023 Presidency

The Yoruba Monarch Alaafin of Oyo has thrown his weight to support the former Governor of Lagos state Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his 2023 Presidency ambition.

During the weekend, the 69-year-old national leader of the ‘All Progressive Congress (APC)’ visited the Oyo monarch Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III to seek his blessings and support in becoming Nigerian President in 2023.

The 83-year-old monarch in his response prayed for Tinubu, saying the Yoruba Ancestors would support him to become the president.

In his words, Oba Lamidi said, “If I check my list now, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the first presidential aspirant to visit me.

“All you the chiefs and traditional rulers, you have heard what our visitor said. He said our prayers are needed. All the ancestors in Yorubaland, get up and assist your son.”

Tinubu since he declared his intention to run for the 2023 presidential sit, has been visiting Monarchs soliciting prayer and support.

Tinubu has since visited the Awujale of Ijebu land and the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde.
