The Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has congratulated the flag-bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in the 2023 presidential election, on clinching the presidential ticket of the Party.

This was after his preferred candidate in the primaries which was held in Abuja, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, came distance third behind Asiwaju and the former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi.

Abiodun, did not hide his support for Osinbajo, when he declared during the consultation of the Vice President to Ogun State that, the delegates will reciprocate his support during the primaries.

This obviously angered Asiwaju who took a swipe at the Governor, last Thursday when he was also in Ogun State, saying the Governor who he described as ‘Eleyi’ (This one), could not have won his election in 2019 without his support.

But Abiodun, in a statement, issued by him in Abeokuta, said the emergence of Tinubu as the APC presidential flag-bearer for the 2023 general election is a good omen for the party and the country as a whole.

According to him, the victory shows that Asiwaju Tinubu is widely beloved and accepted within the country’s entire political spectrum, and shows his level of deep interactions and acceptance not only within the ruling APC but across Nigeria.

He said “This victory indicates that Tinubu as a candidate is good for Nigeria, as it will foster unity, love and understanding amongst Nigerians. His electoral victory cut across all the six geopolitical zones; he had an impact in all the zones. He is the candidate to beat in the 2023 elections.”

Governor Abiodun noted that Tinubu’s extensive political experience and understanding of national politics will surely come in handy when he squares up against candidates from other political parties during the 2023 presidential election.

While saluting his tenacity, courage and resilience, Abiodun expressed confidence that Tinubu will further deepen the Nation's democratic ethos and good governance that will enhance the welfare and wellbeing of Nigerians.

Abiodun urged the leadership and members of the APC to work in unison with a view to ensuring victory in the general election next year.

"We are all winners and no one is a loser in this primary. We all should work together to take Nigeria to a higher pedestal," the statement concluded.
