Posters of the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu have flooded Lagos ahead the 2023 presidential election.
Though Tinubu has not officially declared his intention to contest the 2023 presidency, his body language and those of his supporters tilted toward the presidency.
Tinubu’s posters for the poll were seen in many strategic areas of the state, such as Ojota, Maryland, Ketu Ikeja, Lagos Island, Ikorodu, Ikotun, Igando, Ojuelegba among others.
One of the posters read: “Together we move Nigeria forward, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, President 2023.”

SWAGA is billed for launch in Lagos this week. The launch is expected to fully draw the roadmap for the former governor of Lagos’ 2023 ambition.

The group began a week long sensitization, consultation and mobilisation tour in Lagos with visits to traditional rulers in Badagry, Ikeja, and Lagos Divisions solicited for their support.
At the meeting, Adeyeye said, the group had been strengthened to forge ahead in its consultations because of the positive responses by millions of Nigerians.
He urged the traditional rulers in the areas visited to prevail on Tinubu, to run for 2023 presidential election.
According to the national chairman of SWAGA 23, Tinubu is preferred for the highest service, having demonstrated that capacity as former governor of Lagos state..
