Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu says Southwest Agenda 2023 (SWAGA ’23) is a strong and formidable political base for Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s presidency come 2023.
Sanwo-Olu, in a carnival like ceremony held in Lagos to launch the group on Thursday, said SWAGA was formed based on the belief in Tinubu’s vision and political philosophy that prioritize development of human capital and economy.
The Governor described the APC National Leader as a “core political thinker” of the contemporary generation, noting that Tinubu’s constituency in progressive politics stood him out as a beacon and rallying figure capable of delivering directional leadership to the country in the next dispensation.
“The SWAGA we are launching in Lagos today is a demonstration of Tinubu’s enduring political principles and strong vision. Those behind the movement took the three values and push them with passion. What we are witnessing today is the action from the vision and passion; this is what SWAGA represents. By the grace of God, we will drive this agenda to logical end and we will all witness the inauguration of our political icon come 2023.”
Sanwo-Olu assured the proponents of the movement of his continued support, promising to mobilise more political support for the group. He said he would join hands with SWAGA coordinators to take the agenda beyond the Southwest region and make it a national movement.
Deputy Governor, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, said Tinubu personified the progress the Nigerians had been yearning for, drumming support for the APC National Leader.
