The Yoruba Council of Elders (YCE), yesterday, said it was in support of power shift to the South-West in the 2023 presidential election, adding that if Tinubu gets the ticket of his party, it will support him.
Secretary-General of YCE, Dr. Kunle Olajide, stated this in an interview, in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
He said: “We are in support of South-West producing the President in 2023. We have very many materials in the region. The Yoruba have been the most consistent patriotic section of Nigeria. If it is a consensus that the South-West should produce the next president, it is a welcome development.
‘’But nobody can say Mr. X or Y is the most qualified. We need the person that has the experience, wider reach and exposure. The door is open to all Yoruba sons and daughters.”
