I am pleased to be counted among millions of Nigerians who are genuinely elated that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is alive, hale and hearty and graciously enabled to carry on in fulfilling his God’s given purpose and destiny in life politically and socio-economically.

Whilst it is obvious that chances are as bright as a midnight star that Tinubu will undoubtedly succeed His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023, South-West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA) and all other active political elements across Nigeria including the ruling APC will not rest on their oars to continue to work for a better Nigeria.

The Tinubu we know has a coordinated capacity, zeal, willingness and mental acumen to mitigate against terrorism, banditry, move for unity and be able to bring a better Nigeria to the people and restore the economic fortunes of the nation. His antecedents when he held sway as the Governor of Lagos State speaks volumes of his unprecedented feats.

Yes, every nation will go through these curves and difficult times but how we communicate it to the people and what are the areas to make it easier for the people to bear, those are ideas we have to be able to exchange with the leadership and followership of the country. No President or a leader that will want to see his nation fractured in tribalism or religious differences and others and that is why South-West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA) is becoming unrepentant and gaining momentum by the day in driving and championing the Bola Ahmed Tinubu Presidency having being adjudged as the best man for the job.

Many of us are not surprised that today, a lot of high profile individuals, various political groups and caucuses, many associations and Unions, opinion moulders and social media influencers etc are now in strong and open solidarity with South-West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA). This is good for the person of Asiwaju and the task ahead no doubt, however records need to be accurately and appropriately placed.

It is no longer news that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu commands a gigantic support base with his cult of loyalists, followers and political disciples that are growing on a daily basis.

He is also believed to enjoy the support of a broad spectrum of traditional rulers across the country, some of whom conferred him with honorary chieftaincy titles in appreciation for his nationalistic disposition, philanthropy, spirit of forgiveness and dispassionate bridge building initiatives across the country.

However, we would be doing greatest disservice to history if we fail to acknowledge certain prominent individuals, who were once former lawmakers, serving law makers, Ministers etc., who put their lives, careers, resources and goodwill on the line to campaign for Tinubu to become President in 2023 using the most sought after political group known as SWAGA. Meanwhile SWAGA’23 a voluntary self sponsored movement is till a work in progress.

These are men and women who had at one point or the other suffered persecution, humiliation, victimization, rejections and repudiation, but refused to give up, they were resilient, bold, irrepressible, dogged and fearless with one mind that ”we are ready to swim or sink” with Asiwaju. The EndSARS protest was another ugly development in the memory of our nation which even made some powerful individuals dropped their supports for Asiwaju with the erroneous assertion that ”the game is over” when they could no longer stand the torrents of sponsored negative social media theatrics, tirade and diatribe against BAT.

In the face of this serious heat and tensions in the country, men and women of the SWAGA movement stood firm and consistently refused to drop their support for Asiwaju even when the rumour became rife that Asiwaju was incapacitated few months ago, inspite of all these, SWAGA kept growing like a wild fire, both online and offline as well as the social and traditional media.

Thankfully the ‘Lion of Burdillon’ is roaring again and again in good health as the sensitization train of South West Agenda for Asiwaju (SWAGA’23) has significantly ravaged the entire country, carrying with it the message of millions of Nigerians yearning for Asiwaju Tinubu to contest the 2023 Presidential election.

For the price we owe posterity it is only right and appropriate to unveil these true titans who are behind SWAGA right from the on set, they are Senator Dayo Adeyeye (National Chairman), Hon. Bosun Oladele (National Secretary) Senator Rilwan Akanbi, Senator Gbenga Obadara, Senator Anthony Adeniyi, Hon. Oyetunde Ojo, Hon. Rotimi Makinde, Hon. Ayo Omidiran, Apostle Oloruntoba Oke, Hon. Isiaq Abiodun Akinlade, Hon. Ifedayo Abegunde, Hon. Sunday Adepoju, Hon. Monsuru Alao, Mrs Kafilat Ogbara, and Mr. Kola Peregrino.

On this note, I want to completely agree with Maurice Franks, the author of ”Winning Custody” who said, ”loyalty cannot be blueprinted. It cannot be produced on an assembly line. In fact, it cannot be manufactured at all, for its origin is the human heart — the center of self-respect and human dignity. It is a force which leaps into being only when conditions are exactly right for it — and it is a force very sensitive to betrayal.”
