In a move that will likely anger thousands of supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, given the fact that he is a political export from the southeast, a respected elder and politician in Igbo land has visited the All Progressives Congress (APC) vice presidential candidate, Kashim Shettima in Abuja.
Tinubu is seen has one of the major obstacles for Obi in winning the 2023 presidential election and his ambition is not enjoying favourable support from the southeast. Those associating with Tinubu from the region are also not seen in any favourable light.

2023: APC stakeholders say Tinubu will get 80% votes in southwest
Meanwhile, members of the Next Level Consolidation Forum a Tinubu support group, have predicted that the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will get 80 percent of southwest votes in the 2023 general elections. Led by its national coordinator, Oladosu Oladipo, the APC stakeholders gave this assertion at a meeting held in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.
They hinged their optimism on what they described as the southwest people’s appreciation of Tinubu’s remarkable performance as Lagos governor and his mentorship of several great Nigerians. They added that Tinubu has the vision, knowledge, capacity and capability to deliver a better Nigeria.
Addressing the gathering, Oladosu said the southwest people are unique and appreciate the fact that it is turn of the Yoruba to produce the next president, adding that no true Yoruba will not support his own.
