Dayo Adeyeye, a former lawmaker and minister of state for work, has lifted the lids on the reason behind the establishment of South-West Agenda (SWAGA), an initiative launched for the presidential campaign of Bola Tinubu, former Lagos state governor, ahead of 2023.

Speaking on the SWAGA movement, Adeyeye said Nigeria is in dire need of a very dynamic, forward-looking and experienced leader in Tinubu.
