Speaking at the occasion, Oyetola stated that the Tinubu/Shettima ticket was powered by tested and trusted hands which offers renewed hope for all in all sectors.
He said: “We are here as the Omoluabi contingent to support a team that symbolises the competence, integrity and experience required to further transform the nation and take it to the next level.
“We are here to put South-west seal of excellence on a ticket that had been tested and trusted to deliver excellence in the throes of economic downturn in the past. We are here to support the ticket that promises to give renewed hope and sustainable development.
“As a critical member of the progressives’ family, we have demonstrated that good governance and equitable provision of resources are possible in a depressed economy. We have offered you and your children quality and equitable healthcare, education, infrastructure and security.
“Asiwaju Tinubu and Senator Shettima had also demonstrated these capacities as governors. We did it here. They did it in Lagos and Borno. They will do it in Nigeria. Trust the transformational and ‘talk and do’ duo to deliver a better Nigeria.”
Earlier in her welcome address, Director of the Directorate, Chief (Mrs) Titilayo Laoye-Ponnle said the directorate has representatives from all the south west states, assuring to deliver 90% votes for the APC presidential ticket from the zone.
She noted that Tinubu is the answer to Nigerians’ prayers for the transformation of the economy, security, employment, education, health and other sectors
“From this meeting, we are set to move from door to door, ward to ward, LG to LG campaigning for Tinubu. The campaign will start properly at the grassroots. We are ready to deliver the 90% votes of the population of southwest.
“There will be no more inflation, kidnapping with Asiwaju as the president. There will be a great transformation if Tinubu comes in,” she said.
Ponnle admonished members of the directorate to work assiduously in canvassing support for Tinubu who has the capacity in delivering good governance.
Also speaking, Chairman of APC in Osun State, Prince Gboyega Famodun maintained that Asiwaju remains the most popular politician in Nigeria today and an icon.
Famodun noted that the issue in Nigeria today, is that you either likes Asiwaju or remain silent forever.
