The traditional rulers of the Yoruba people from Ekiti, Lagos, Kogi, Kwara, Ogun, Ondo, Osun and Oyo states, disclosed this in a communique issued after their meeting last at the International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan, Oyo State.

It was learnt that the traditional rulers were satisfied with Tinubu’s presentation during the meeting.

On his part, the Olugbon of Orile-Igbon and Vice Chairman, Oyo State Council of Obas and Chief, Oba Francis Olushola Alao, added that “The meeting was unique and symbolic towards the unity of the Yoruba speaking state because it goes beyond southwest which includes Kogi and Kwara.

“It’s a clear endorsement of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a result of his excellent track record and great achievement which put him above other candidates as the only personality that would bring unity, fairness and justice to the Nigeria system”.
