-O. Adejo

The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, has assured the All Progressives Congress, APC, and presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, that Yoruba ancestors would ensure his victory in 2023.

VIP magazine reports that the Oba gave the blessings on Sunday when the Asiwaju of Lagos paid him a visit after winning the APC ticket earlier in the month.

The monarch believes Tinubu’s victory in the 2023 presidential election will make the Yoruba land a better place.

“Your emergence as your party’s presidential candidate marks the beginning of another journey in your political career,” he said.

“On this journey to make our fatherland a better place, all Yoruba ancestors will be with you.”

Earlier, Tinubu, a former governor of the state, told the monarch that his bid to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari was motivated by a desire to ensure that the Yoruba nation is adequately represented at the national level.
