The Southwest Agenda for Tinubu 2023 presidential ambition (SWAGA), has said that the aggressive mobilization embarked upon by the group in Ekiti State is to save the All Progressives Congress, (APC ) from defeat in the 2022 governorship election in the state.
The group also claimed that the Dr. Kayode Fayemi administration has failed the people of the state.
Senator Dayo Adeyeye, the National chairman of SWAGA, spoke in Ado Ekiti on Saturday while rounding off a sensitization and mobilization tour of the 16 council areas of the state.
According to Adeyeye, “APC in Ekiti has lost popularity despite being the ruling party owing to alleged politics of hatred and alienation being played by those loyal to Governor Fayemi.
“We are on the field to rekindle Ekiti people’s hope in the sensitization party”.
He noted further that, “SWAGA is now a movement that has taken over Ekiti. If APC conducts any primary for the governorship in Ekiti and the presidency today, SWAGA will win.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu that we are promoting is a man who doesn’t forget his people, unlike betrayers that we have here. So, SWAGA is the right way to tread.
“They said it is direct primary, we are happy with that. They won’t be able to rig anything. The executives loyal to Governor Fayemi are fake, we are the authentic ones that conducted the congresses in line with the guidelines of our party, others were imposed.
“Let us begin the grassroots politicking. Don’t be afraid of anybody, this government has got to its twilight.
“Instead of going out to canvass for votes, they are doing their permutations on computers; that has always been their idea, but we are on the streets now working because we know the value of our people.”
“We have not committed any crime for working for the presidential aspiration of Senator Tinubu in APC”.
While reacting, the APC State Publicity Secretary, Segun Dipe, accused Adeyeye of attempting to create division in the party which he (Adeyeye) joined because of its popularity, saying, “If you come as a stranger to a party and the first thing you do is to divide it, then ask yourself what is the problem.
“APC is the only party now in Ekiti that has a Secretariat, that has an executive committee, it is the only organized party that we know of today in Ekiti. If he is saying APC is unpopular, then there is no popular party in Ekiti. I can assure you that APC is very popular.”
