Prince Dayo Adeyeye, Chairman of South West Agenda (SWAGA), a political group championing the presidential ambition of former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in the 2023 general election has denied rumours that the group has been disbanded.
There were reports that Tinubu had told the group, which has been in the forefront of Yoruba unity ahead of the 2023 presidential election to tone down their activities for now.
However, responding to enquiries by Daily Independent, Adeyeye, a former Minister of Works, on Wednesday described the report as nonsense, saying there was no way SWAGA could be disbanded.
“How can SWAGA be disbanded? It’s nonsense for anyone to say that. Disregard it,” he said.
He had earlier said the group did not get the approval of Tinubu to begin presidential campaign for him.
He said the group, which comprised former lawmakers and political associates of Tinubu, began the campaign to get its presence in all polling units across the country.
“The National Leader of the ruling APC, Asiwaju Tinubu, has not informed any member of the group that he has interest in the election.
“We opted for Tinubu to present the best candidate for the election in the South. We want all of Yoruba to rally round him in order to have a more viable front to clinch the Presidency,” he stated.
