Tinubu is not just the ‘Jagaban’ of the South West but the entire Nigeria, he said.

That is why we must make it a duty to work and deliver our polling units, local government areas and state for Tinubu.
If they tell you that he is not young, tell them he is a friend of the youths.
If we vote him, we will be better for it because he has assisted many to heights they never imagined.
We are counting on you, we have a choice before of us and that choice is Tinubu, he said.
